June 9, 2014 Hanover Mansion / Vien’s School interior
I wrote about the Hanover Mansion that’s now the Vien’s Girls school building; the Williamsburg story a few weeks ago. I was looking for pictures of the interior, and yesterday, I was lucky enough to be allowed in to take a few. The students all seemed to know that the significance of the building is its history as the “Rothschild Mansion”. I told them that it used to be a club, but I wasn’t sure how to explain that.
One feisty little girl said, “I can’t believe this was ever a mansion.”
Take a look around and tell me what you think!
