Richard Manuel's Bellows Ln residence in Woodstock, NY

Richard Manuel, pianist & one of three amazing The Band voices, lived in this Bellows Ln house. The house was built for famed boxing (Dempsey era) painter George Bellows in the early 1920s & Richard lived there in the 1960s. He wrote the song Whispering Pines @ this house. Bellows Ln is located @ the southern tier of the Byrdcliffe artist colony. Take Rock City Rd off from Rt 212 in the ctr of Woodstock - near the top of the road, take a left onto Lower Byrdcliffe Rd & then a left onto Bellows Ln.
