About Barrett ברוך Solomon Visanska

Jewish Gen records his birth in Suwalki, Suwalki, Poland in 1848 to Aron Wizajnska and Chaja Dyna Zylbersztejn, "Zyskowna" (daughter of Zysk).

The Visanska Starks House and Carriage House

In 1913, Mrs. Arthur sold the house to Barrett Visanska, a Polish immigrant and watchmaker by trade. During this time, Waverly was home to black and white residents, and the Visanskas enjoyed friendships with such neighbors as funeral home owner Willis Johnson. Visanska was a founder of the Tree of Life Congregation in Columbia, later serving as its first Vice President and President. His son Morton Visanska, also a Tree of Life President, was a founder of Town Theatre, the oldest community theatre building in continuous use in the United States. The Visanska house was full of music; mother Rachel was a pianist, son Daniel played the violin professionally in several orchestras in Europe. Florence and Morton were musicians, and child prodigy Bertha attended the National Conservatory of Music, directed by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak. Daniel Visanska served as concertmaster for the Conservatory
