Outing: Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens

We had a great daytrip with the residents to the historic Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens. Marjorie Merriweather Post bought Hillwood in 1955 and soon decided her home would be a museum that would inspire and educate the public. Our docent gave us a very inspiring tour of the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia, a distinguished 18th century French decorative art collection, and twenty-five acres of serene landscaped gardens and natural woodlands for all to enjoy. After the tour, we had a delicious lunch at the Hillwood Café which everyone enjoyed.
