1959: 400 Quaker Road, Chappaqua NY


Visited in May 2004

On our driving trip to New York, we saw two deer right as we left Dad's home in CT. We saw a badger too!

Dad was only in Chappaqua for six months. At the time, youngest child Bruce had a club foot so Jane Waller took the four kids "home" to New York to have it worked on. They left George back in Brazil to keep working. The group arrived at the beginning of summer, and only stayed for the first half of 8th grade. It was tough for them coming from being in Brazil for 2 years. They went from the sunny beaches and oceanfront to this Chappaqua home, right on a main road, no kids to play with.





It's a historic house. Dad had the room on the second floor, front right corner by the chimney. Here are photos of his window. He remembers climbing out the window and down the chimney to gallavant at night. His bed was right by that window and he slept with it open, with no screen. He says he could easily have rolled right out.





Right next door was / is a Friend's chapterhouse.





The lease ran out and they still had more treatment to do, so the family moved down to Westport CT for a month before returning to Brazil.
