Long Description:
Norman Rockwell Moved from Vermont to Stockbridge, MA in 1953 to be close to his wife. She was being treated at Austen Riggs Center. He opened a studio on the second floor of a building on Main Street of Stockbridge, MA. The first floor was occupied by a buthcer shop. Rockwell installed a large picture (single frame) window to allow more light into the studio. He moved out of the studio in 1957. Several years later Alice and her husband opened Alice's Restaraunt in the back of the first floor. This was just one of several studios occupied by Norman Rockwell. There is another in Vermont and the other in Stockbridge that was relocated to its present location and repurposed as the Norman Rockwell Museum.

40 East Main Street Stockbridge, MA 01262
