Visit The Mount, Edith Wharton's summer country home, in Lenox, MA with tour leader, Marie Stella. Spend time in the three acre formal gardens which are comprised of the Italian walled garden, alpine rock garden, grass terraces, floral displays and the lime (linden) walk. Gain insight into the complex restoration process as we review archival material, period photographs and Wharton's literary works. We will lunch together at the Garden Cafe and meet with Executive Director, Susan Wissler. Later you are free to explore on your own and stay for a live music performance at the terrace cafe, starting at 5 PM. Bring a picnic supper to enjoy, if you wish.
