Graycliff Estate will offer two-hour historic landscape tours Saturdays monthly May through September, and Wednesdays monthly June through September, at the estate grounds at 6472 Old Lakeshore Rd., Derby.

With the completion of the first major phase of Graycliff’s historic landscape restoration, this series of tours will focus on the historic landscape while also including Wright’s architecture as well.

Graycliff’s landscape was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright himself, with additional designs contributed by Ellen Biddle Shipman, known as the “Dean of American Women Landscape Architects” and one of the originators of the Arts & Crafts-style garden.

These tours will be led by Marion Schmidt, a Graycliff Board member.

Please reserve early to take part on one of the following dates in 2015:

· Saturdays at 9:30 a.m.: May 30, June 27, July 25, Aug 22, Sept 19
· Wednesdays at 10 a.m.: June 3, July 8, July 15, Aug 12, Sept 9
