In 1903, Voorhees purchased an eighteenth-century home in Old Lyme, becoming an established resident. He played a very active role in the community, becoming a charter member of the town's volunteer fire department and eventually, president of its library board. Unsurprisingly, then, many of Voorhees most characteristic oils, depict Old Lyme subjects. Voorhees also spent quite a bit of time in the Berkshire region when visiting his in-laws, the Folsoms, in Lenox, MA and seems to have preferred capturing the area during the Winter season.
