A casual gathering of experts sharing their knowledge of the history and restoration of the iconic statues on the National Historic Landmark Derby Summer House. This garden folly will be open for visitors to ‘take the air’ from the second floor and look over the historic gardens. Thanks to a matching grant from Massachusetts Historical Commission, the Society will be restoring the statues to the peak within the coming year. Stroll the historic garden rooms and learn about this preservation project.
