It’s been in the same family for over 60 years, and memories abound. Greg’s mom used the little studio for to create major works of art, including one which was exhibited at the 1964-1965 New York Worlds Fair! The house was a museum of her artwork – her paintings on all the walls. She lived in the house until she was 99, and lived with Greg’s sister until she was almost 103! Greg fondly remembers setting up his Lionel Train Set which included a Raymond Loewy designed GG-1 electric locomotive.
