Opening Weekend Update

Happy Mother's Day! We had an excellent opening weekend, with nearly 200 visitors on Sunday alone. The weather on Sunday was spectacular, as were the tulips and jonquils in the garden and periwinkle along the driveway. The interest shown in keeping Edith Wharton's legacy alive and well was heartening. We had quite a few visitors from our neighbors to the west; the Upper Hudson Library System had recently featured The Age of Innocence in its Albany Reads program. Many thanks to those who came out to support us in person and to those who continue to support us through donations and pledges.
We hope to see you soon!
