Autumn in Cornelia’s Gardens

Brilliant red, yellow, and orange leaves will be ablaze for this landscape tour.  The walk will feature fabulous foliage displays of the native shrubs, Japanese maples, historic sugar maple planted by General William T. Sherman, and the European Copper Beeches planted by Gov. Gifford Pinchot, among other favorites.

Grey Towers Horticulturist Elizabeth Hawke will provide an inside look at how some of the landscape plants, trees and buildings were incorporated into the design of the 1886-French Chateauesque mansion estate by the Pinchot family.

Meet at the Visitor Pavilion.

Regular tour fees apply. Reservations suggested.
