Minnisingh is written by Phil and Tina, who are married and live in Poughkeepsie.  Where this house is.  They both work for nonprofits in New York City.  Before starting this site, they blogged at Thirty Bucks a Week, which was about spending thirty bucks a week on groceries.

The house is stone construction and was built in 1910 by a local factory owner (our street is named after him).  In over 100 years, we are only the house’s third owners.

    Glad to know what the name means. Does it refer to the blog or the house or both?

    The new owners seem a little scary in this photo. Are they friendly?

    I can’t wait to see what you think of Poughkeepsie once you get settled in. I grew up about 10 minutes from your house but haven’t lived up there for 20+ years. I do come up every month or so to visit and it is quite different from Brooklyn 🙂

    Goog luck!
