Tours at our houses in New York to South Carolina

As we transition into the last quarter of our 2016 tour season, each of the houses remaining very busy with tours and special events. Since Labor Day, the following groups have visited Edgewater: The Clark Art Institute, the Rockford Art Museum, Highlands- Cashiers Chamber Music Festival, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Historic New England, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Collectors from Laguna Beach, California.

At the Baker House, there was also a presentation and cocktail reception for the Friends of Boscobel House and Gardens, a restored Federal-period house on the Hudson River built between 1804-1808, and a great time was had by all who attended.

Not having the draw of the northern fall foliage that brings visitors to the Hudson River Valley, the Roper House was nonetheless not to be out-done and welcomed students from Clemson University, donors of Chamber Music Charleston for a cocktail reception celebrating their 10th Anniversary, The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, The Guggenheim Museum, participants of the Preservation Society of Charleston‘s 40th Annual Fall Tours, and guests from Virtuoso Voyager Club Cruises.
