Virtual: Armchair Tour of the Codman Estate with Historic New England
Tuesday, February 27, 2024
Enjoy an armchair tour of the Codman Estate, a famous Massachusetts property preserved by Historic New England. The five generations of the Codman family to live here left their mark, and the estate that was originally a country retreat gradually came to symbolize the family's distinguished past. The interiors, richly furnished with portraits, memorabilia, and art works collected in America and Europe, preserve the decorative schemes of every era, including those of noted interior designer Ogden Codman, Jr. The grounds feature a hidden Italianate garden, c. 1900, with perennial beds, statuary, and a reflecting pool filled with water lilies, as well as an English cottage garden, c. 1930.
Led by Wendy Hubbard, Site Manager at Historic New England.
