Celebration of Peonies at Hildene, VT 1409 CourseCatalog/images/new.gif

The formal garden at the Lincoln Family home comes to life each spring ever so gradually as all Vermont gardens do. Then, suddenly as if on cue, as they did 100 years ago, the peonies "pop" and the garden is awash in mor than 1000 blooms. Hildene, the summer home of Robert Todd Lincoln sits on a garden promontory overlooking the  Battenkill Valley, We will tour the grounds, as well as the interior of the home, which is highlighted by the special aeolian 1000 pipe organ which is played daily. We will lunch at theWilburton Inn, a historic grand estate in Manchester Village. We will also stop at the Chocolatorium, a permanent exhibit exploring the world of chocolate, where you will receive a complimentary box of chocolates. Trip includes motor coach transportation, tour leader, tour of Hildene and lunch.

Cost of trips is non-refundable.
