Course Detail: OSH-PXHILLWD - Hillwood Estate, Museum & Garden Trip

FIELD TRIP Marjorie Merriweather Post purchased Hillwood with the intent to leave it as a museum that would inspire and educate the public. We will have a docent guided mansion tour that show her rich collections and her passion for history. You will marvel at the beautiful gardens as Spring turns to Summer during our docent tour. Following our tours we will have lunch on the grounds at the Merriweather Cafe. Be sure to save time for the special exhibition on Marjorie's Paris.
