WOODSTOCK- This year Roseland Cottage celebrates the 200th birthday of its builder and Woodstock native son Henry Chandler Bowen. A season of special commemorative programing is planned, beginning on June 1, with complimentary tours of Mr. Bowen’s remarkable summer home, now a National Historic Landmark. To insure that this special season begins on an appropriately festive note, Historic New England and Woodstock Recreation will sponsor a Twilight Concert on the evening of June 1, at 6 p.m. Classic Brass will perform a free concert of British Brass music and show tunes. Guests are encouraged to tour the house, bring a picnic dinner, relax on the grounds, and enjoy the show. Roseland Cottage, a Historic New England museum, is open regularly Wednesday through Sunday, June through October 15. Guided tours are offered on the hour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 1 is Open House Day at all 36 Historic New England house museums, and all 36 will offer complimentary tours on that day.
