Untermyer Gardens Guided Tour

Untermyer Gardens

945 North Broadway
Yonkers, NY 10701

The tour will highlight the history of the estate from its origin in 1862, through each of its 3 owners, emphasizing its world famous heyday in the Untermyer years, its dramatic decline after 1940, and the remarkable restoration efforts that have been ongoing from 2010 to the present day. There will be an emphasis on Samuel Untermyer and his wife and their place in early 20th century history, as well as discussion of the remarkable architecture of the gardens. The magnificent plantings mostly speak for themselves, but there also will be some discussion of the horticulture�"including elements of garden design in general and of this garden in particular, and identification and discussion of some plants and plant combinations.  And lest you think the gardening season is over by now, September and October are the the most beautiful months of all in this garden! No reservations are needed. Bring water and wear sturdy closed toe shoes. We meet behind the Community Center near the small parking lot.  The Sept 2 tour is history focused, the Sept 9 tour is the premium President's tour and Sept 16 is horticulture focused.  All are $10 except President's tour which is $25.
