Grey Towers’ Historic Landscape Walk June 4 In Pike County

Come see the historic gardens at Grey Towers National Historic Site, Gov. Gifford Pinchot’s former residence, in Milford, Pike County, in its late spring glory on June 4 at 10 a.m.
Participants will learn botanical as well as historical information about the many perennials, flowering and woody shrubs, such as the mountain laurel, Pennsylvania’s state flower, that should be blooming.
The historic gardens that surround the stone mansion have provided inspiration since they were planted by Cornelia Pinchot nearly a century ago. Experience first-hand how the setting continues to inspire generations of visitors today.
Meet Horticulturist Elizabeth Hawke at the Visitor Pavilion in the Grey Towers parking lot for this approximately 90-minute walking tour through the landscape.
Reservations strongly suggested; call 570-296-9630 for information. $8 adults/$7 seniors; exact change preferred. The walk is held rain or shine; sturdy, comfortable footwear is recommended.
