Gilded Twig reflects art conservator and master gilder Deborah Bigelow's long career in art conservation and current business interest in handmade gold leaf art jewelry. 

The Telephone Building

One autumn evening in 1907, the switchboards of the Hudson River Telephone Company lit up for the very first time. The handsome new building on Main Street employed the latest technology. When subscribers lifted his or her receiver off the hook to make a call, a small light automatically lit up on the switchboard. When the operator connected the call, another light came on, and the light went off when the call was over. This great advance in communications technology was quite impressive to the turn-of-the-century man or woman.

Over one hundred years later, and after a long, artful restoration by building owner Deborah Bigelow of Gilded Twig, Beacon's original telephone building is home, once again, to those in the business of communication! Today, where rows of operators once staffed state-of-the-art electric switchboards, BEAHIVE members share a creative, co-working environment making calls on cell phones and working from laptops to communicate with clients locally and worldwide. Its twenty-first century tenants - BEAHIVE, A Little Beacon Blog, Gilded Twig, and Mara Farrell Concepts - infuse the building with their business energy as well as support for each other and the local community.
