Event Type Historic Site Tour/History Description 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. Children twelve and under are free. 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. Strollers are not advised for the tours.
