Tuning in to TV
Home base is Mr. Pinchot’s circa 1840 mansion in the center of Harford, a town of about 1,300 people. It was the home of state Sen. Edward Jones in the early 1900s and had more recently served as office space. Mr. Pinchot bought the place in 2000.
The first season’s architectural stars are his Ionic-columned mansion and Decker House, a smaller home rehabbed with salvaged wood from demolished old buildings, windows from an abandoned farmhouse and floors from a property formerly part of late heiress Doris Duke’s estate.
Not only is “The Bronson Pinchot Project” a show about historic restoration, it’s a love letter to his adopted hometown.
“Harford is to be seen through my lens, which is that it’s heaven on earth,” he said. “None of this ‘big fish in a little pond.’ No. We’re not doing ‘Green Acres.’ “
