ALICE'S HOUSE STORIES

Every house has a story. The story of Alice’s House has been shared and enriched by everyone who has ever crossed its threshold. Walking through the doors, you were embraced by the warmth and serenity that was within those walls -- the old fashioned roses lining the walkway, the oak table that filled the kitchen, the treasures that Alice had carefully displayed throughout the house, the first edition books stacked proudly in the cozy library, the beckoning porch rockers, the soothing rhythm of the tides. Those who visited shared their stories in volumes of handwritten journals -- words that produced laughter as well as tears, words that inspired, and words that made your heart smile. Though the tragic fire consumed those pages, the heartfelt reflections and memories that they contained remain etched forever in the hearts of those who wrote them and those who read them then, and for you to read them now.

WE NEED YOUR HELP
TO REBUILD ALICE'S HOUSE

Destroyed by fire, the question asked was whether a new Aliceʼs House would rise from the ashes. Hearing of the profound impact the house had on so many lives, the non-profit organization launched an initiative in 2015 to rebuild Aliceʼs House. Architectural plans are complete. A contractor has been selected. Groundbreaking is scheduled for spring 2016. The new Aliceʼs House will have four bedrooms and baths, a wide-open first floor gathering space and kitchen, a wrap around deck leading to the beach and full handicap accessibility. Although new, the design will maintain the houseʼs original foot- print and comforting embrace, welcoming the majesty of the Atlantic waves just a hundred feet across the sand. Once rebuilt, the new Aliceʼs House will be financially self sustaining. Summer rentals will provide an economic base which will be augmented by guest donations throughout the year.
