Garden History Tour Part 1 - June 19
You are signing up for a 75-minute guided tour of Untermyer Park and Gardens at 11:00AM on June 19, led by one of our expert volunteer docents.
History Part 1: This tour covers the Walled Garden, its Lower Terrace and the Vista to the columns at the bottom. Part 1 is about ¼ mile long and has a 112-foot drop in elevation. (Plan on another ¼ mile and the 112-foot ascent to return to the entrance).
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.
