You’ve probably passed them many times on the east side of Stockbridge Road (Route 7). The buildings have different colors now, but years ago they were painted the same barn red when they were all part of Jenifer House. They were then (as now) an important part of Great Barrington’s commercial life.
On Wednesday, October 5th, you can learn all about this well-known tourist mecca at the Great Barrington Historical Society’s program presented by Jill Lipski at the Claire Teague Senior Center, 917 South Main Street (Route 7) at 7pm.
Jill’s father Karl Lipski was the owner of Jenifer House, which opened in the 1950s on the former Crissey Farm site. The event is free, but donations are gratefully accepted!
