Legacy Curator Kathy Connor will take you on a tour of the historic gardens from 1905 when George Eastman first moved in, through the eventual changes that took place after his death when the mansion became the residence of University of Rochester presidents. The tour will include discussion of why his childhood home was moved to the estate, the restoration efforts undertaken in the early 1990s, and the work that continues to this day.
Free to all.
