Calling all gardeners, and those interested in historic landscapes. With the completion of the first major phase of Graycliff's historic landscape restoration, we are pleased to offer a series of tours that focus on the historic landscape, while also including Wright's architecture as well.
Graycliff's landscape was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright himself. Wright drew a landscape design for Graycliff--in his own hand--to supplement those for Graycliff buildings, to complete his conception of Graycliff as entire masterwork that encompassed both buildings and landscape.
Wright's work was augmented with additional designs contributed by Ellen Biddle Shipman, known as the "Dean of American Women Landscape Architects" and one of the originators of the Arts & Crafts-style garden.
These two-hour tours will be led by a Master Docent who is particularly knowledgeable about Graycliff's historic landscape. These tours will be offered on select weekend dates.
