Garden History Tour - Sunday July 25
You are signing up for a guided tour of Untermyer Park and Gardens at 11:00AM on Sunday, July 25.
This tour highlights the history of the estate from its origin in 1862, through each of its three 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 2011 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. There will be some limited discussion of the horticulture but the magnificent plantings will mostly speak for themselves.
The tour will start promptly at 11:00AM. Your guide will have a check-in list of people registered for the tour, there is no need to print a copy of your receipt.
As the tour goes down the steps of the Vista and then back up a woodland path to the Temple of Love, we suggest sturdy shoes, and recommend that you bring water. Strollers are not advised for the tours.
