The Lucy Jarvis Room

The current owners of this home rescued it from the wrecker's ball and restored it as a four-and-a-half star inn. Lucy Jarvis had been born in Toronto in 1896, the eldest of the children of Edward harris and his wife Kate Agnes Harris. Iy was as a child growing up in Yarmouth that Lucy was introduced to the post-Crayola world. She fancied it very much and established a studio for herself on the second floor during her teen years. She added to her knowledge of the subject when her family shipped her off to Havergal Ladies College in Toronto. She graduated in 1914 but it was another decade before she took full formal training at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
