wealthiest families. These homes were used by the families for
vacations and getaways. These families included: H.P McIntosh, the

and importance. This is just a beginning. We will continue to
gather information on our homes and their histories. We welcome your
information and any photos. Nottingham has several "historic"

information, surveying existing homes, and identifying existing resources &
supports. Enjoy what we have posted and contact us if you can be of assistance!
