Brief History Of Winvian Farm
Back in 1775, there was a man named Dr. Seth Bird. He was eccentric but a respected physician. He was known for bringing a coffin along on his house calls. Dr. Bird built a white clapboard covered with meadows and woods for his family in Connecticut.
The Smith family bought the historic Bird estate in 1948 and named it Win-Vian. Win-Vian is the combination of the first names of Winthrop Smith and Vivian, his wife. They raised their son, bountiful fruits and vegetables, and livestock on the property. The luxury Spa stands where the pigpens once did, but it offers a better kind of mud treatment.
Winvian Farm remains in the Smith family today, restored by Maggie Smith and Win Smith into a luxurious and unconventional place.
