Wednesday Walk-arounds and Saturday Strolls: guided tours of Blithewold

Posted

Docents tell the story of the Van Wickle/McKee family, the original owners of this beautiful seaside garden estate. Visitors experience breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay and see the Mansion decorated with original furnishings, just as it was when the family lived here. The guided tour continues through the grounds, where magnificent trees and a variety of colorful gardens demonstrate Blithewold's prominence in horticulture.

This tour concludes with a Q & A, complete with iced tea served on Blithewold's North West Porch. Please register at Blithewold.org.
