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. September and October are actually the most beautiful time of the year 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. Both tours are history focused.
