Shindig at Chinsegut

The first Chinsegut Hill Celebration took place Saturday morning at Chinsegut Hill manor house in Brooksville. With renovations to the manor house well under way, the event invited guests to enjoy an arts and crafts show, music and family activities, all with the historic house as a backdrop. "We hope to make this an annual event," said Christie Anderberg, Friends of Chinsegut Hill executive director. "We had a silent auction last night and raised about $4,000 to help pay for the bills we have." She hopes renovations will be complete in about a year, when tours and other events can start in earnest.
