September 2019

Some of  Our Ladies visited the Blue Garden in Newport. It was created By Mrs.  Mrs, Arthur Curtiss James in the early 1900s  and was recently restored by the enthusiastic horticulturist and philanthropist Mrs. Dorrance “Dodo” Hamilton. The Garden Director Sarah Vance takes small groups on tours of the gardens

 

The Blue Garden is a private garden and open to visitors who are affiliated with a group or institution involved in garden design, horticulture, historic preservation, or landscape architecture. For an appointment to visit the garden—open on Thursdays at 11:00am and 2:00pm, from June to September—please send information about your affiliation.
