Update from The Mount

We are having a very exciting fall here at The Mount. Last week we had a visit from over 60 high school students from Naugatuck, CT who are reading Ethan Frome, The Age of Innocence or The House of Mirth in their classes. On the same day we were visited by Erin Moriarty and her team from CBS. She interviewed some of the students about their experience at The Mount, as well as Susan Wissler, our Acting Director, about the status of the Save The Mount campaign. The piece is due to air this weekend (Oct. 12)on CBS's Sunday Morning so mark it on your calendars.
We are looking forward to a gorgeous autumn Columbus Day weekend. The highlight of the three-day holiday for us will be this Monday the 13th when the main gates of The Mount will once more open to welcome the gleaming carriages and high-stepping horses of a bygone era, as part of Berkshire Coaching Weekend.
See our main web site for the details and please make plans to join us!
