During high school, Anne developed a special love for the island of Martha’s Vineyard where she honeymooned and vacationed almost every year since 1982. She developed a huge interest in Greek Revival architecture and the New England houses built in that style. She loved antiquing and collecting pre-Civil War era furniture. She collected antique sprig ware china, acquired one of the largest collections in Central Ohio and she loved every piece of it!
