Kathleen BrunelleBooks By The Sea will be hosting local author Kathleen Brunelle at the store, Saturday, February 16, from 2-4 pm.  Kathleen will be signing her new book Cape Cod’s Highfield & Tanglewood: A Tale of Two Cottages.

In 1876 wealthy Bostonian Pierson Beebe chose a secluded hill in Falmouth as the spot to build his summer cottage, Highfield Hall. The following year, his brother James Arthur Beebe began construction next door on his own mansion, Tanglewood. The land that they preserved, the architecture they created, and the cultural activities they promoted are deeply rooted in Falmouth’s history.     Highfield and Tanglewood

Author Kathleen Brunelle’s grandparents were the caretakers of the cottages, and she grew up exploring their many secrets. Join Brunelle as she narrates the remarkable history of these treasured Falmouth landmarks and once again wanders the historic rooms of Highfield Hall.

 

Newport’s got nothing on Falmouth!
