8:30 am - 3:00 pm
Don’t miss our first outing of the season to KYKUIT, the Landmark National Trust, classical revival home to 4 generations of the Rockefeller family. Our docent-led tour will emphasize the extensive, terraced gardens with classical and contemprorary sculpture and mangificent views of the Hudson in early fall glory. A boxed lunch will be offered after the tour. Register on-line to hold your spot. We will also see the lower floor of the home.
Meet at the Rowayton Community Center lower parking lot at 8:30 am to form carpools. Let us know if you’re willing to be a driver. Departure will be at 8:45 sharp!
We will drive to Philipsburg Manor, where we will split into 2 mini-bus groups for Kykuit: Group A – departs at 10 am and returns to Philipsburg Manor at 12.15 pm; Group B – departs at 10:15 am and returns to Philipsburg Manor at 12:30 pm. There will be ample time to explore the gift shop.
A boxed lunch prepared by Geordane’s Market & Catering in Irvington, NY, will follow at Philipsburg Manor. Weather-permitting, lunch will be outside but an indoor space is available in case of rain.
We will return to Rowayton Community Center by 3 pm.
(There is quite a lot of walking on this tour, so sensible shoes are required.)
