NEW! Maymont Trip to Hillwood

September 14, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Enjoy a special excursion to one of the most fashionable residences in the nation’s capitol, the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post (1887-1973), socialite, philanthropist, art collector, heiress and owner of General Foods. Ellen Charles, Mrs. Post’s granddaughter, will welcome Maymont members to Hillwood and recount memories of her stylish grandmother. The visit includes a guided tour of Post’s Georgian-style mansion, where the opulent French drawing room, dining room and bedroom suite are filled with her 18th-century French decorative art and Russian imperial art collections. Guests will view the exhibit of her jewelry, “Spectacular Gems and Jewels,” enjoy a private luncheon with Mrs. Charles, spend time in the charming gift shop and take a guided tour of the serenely landscaped gardens and natural woodlands. Space is limited. Register by August 30.
