Event Description: 

This guided architectural tour explores an American masterwork created by H.H. Richardson and F.L. Olmsted...from the glacial site and iconic Great Hall to the attic. Discover the genius of the charismatic architect through one of his last and most breathtaking works. This innovative country house rooted in the Arts and Crafts movement broke from Victorian convention, introducing a new way of thinking about living space and heralding 20th-century modernism. Experience Richardson's flowing spaces, expressive forms, rich textures and handcrafted details, as well as loggias and back-of-the-house areas rarely shown.
