The Stevens-Coolidge Place: Endless Summer Garden Party

Hosted By: 

The Trustees of Reservations
Come and enjoy an open house and garden tours at The Stevens-Coolidge Place. We will even have croquet set up to enjoy in the formal lawn. Come explore the Stevens Coolidge Place country estate and the simple c1800 farmhouse that was transformed into an elegant estate with garden “rooms,” murals, bowed windows, and many Colonial Revival architectural details. Come step back into the 1920’s as you roam through the neo-Georgian Colonial house taking in the house’s collection of Chinese porcelain and artifacts from the Steven’s travels through Asia and Europe in the early 1900’s. The house will be open free of charge from 10-2 with docents on hand to answer any questions you might have about The Stevens-Coolidge Place. The beautiful gardens behind the estate will also be open to explore and garden tours will begin at 11 and 1 in the Perennial Garden. The Superintendent will be guiding these tours that will focus on the past and present of the Perennial Garden, French Garden, Rose Garden, and cutting garden, as well as looking at harvesting and putting your garden to bed for the winter. Bring your own picnic or indulge in festive harvest snacks such as apple cider donuts, apples, and other harvest goodies. Refreshments will also be provided.

Special Instructions:
