Master Gardeners Mary Lou O’Connor and Linda Woodbury  will provide context for the estate’s current historical interpretation, including information about the 18th and 19th century residents and neighbors involved in horticultural and agricultural pursuits during Roxbury’s heyday as a gardening community.  Weather permitting guests will enjoy a guided tour of the Madam Eustis Gardens, the Parterre, the Forecourt and the Orchards.

 Horticulturally inspired refreshments will be served.
