Innis Arden Cottage
The Innis Arden Cottage at Greenwich Point (aka Queen Anne Building) was built by the Tod Family in 1902-03 for use as a guest house. The building has been recently restored by the Greenwich Point Conservancy as part of a public/private partnership with the Town of Greenwich. It is now operating as the Floren Family Environmental Center and includes meeting rooms, office space, and, during the summer months is home to the Bruce Museum Seaside Center.
The building is owned and managed by the Town as part of its Parks and Recreation Department. The Conservation Commission will be responsible for all programming in the building. It will be available to town agencies and non-profit/civic groups for education and outreach during normal park hours. It will not be available for private parties. Key partners that are coordinating programming with Conservation include the Town of Greenwich Shellfish Commission, Greenwich Public Schools, Bruce Museum, Greenwich Point Conservancy, Friends of Greenwich Point, Audubon Greenwich, and Soundwaters. Programs supporting the mission of environmental and cultural literacy will be the primary focus of the Center. Details for use of the building, including rental fees, are in development. For more information about the use of the building contact: Denise Savageau, Conservation Director – 203-622-6461 or email@example.com
