Jill’s “romance” with Hanover began in the late 1950’s at a Dartmouth Glee Club concert. That young man standing front row center whom she’d never met—the one with the beautiful baritone who sang two solos—that undergraduate eventually became her husband.
Thanks to Pat’s long career in the diplomatic corps, she and her husband Darryl have lived in many different countries and experienced a wide variety of housing types. In Norway, they became enchanted with hytter, the small cabins in the woods that every Norwegian family seemed to own. While renting these cabins for weekend getaways, Pat and Darryl found that they liked living remotely in the woods and decided to pursue this lifestyle in the U.S. for their retirement.
