Historical House & Garden Tour – Sunday, October 20, 2019

October 20 @ 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Have you ever wondered who lived in the mansion before it was Loyola Jesuit Center? What was life like in the house and on the estate before it became a retreat center? Please join us on Sunday, October 20 at 2pm for a unique opportunity to tour the house and gardens through the eyes of Robert Dumont Foote, millionaire, farmer, banker and the original owner of the home once known as Spring Brook House. This is the largest residence ever built in Morristown and a classic example of a turn of the century Gilded Age mansion. It is listed on the national registry of historic sites. Carol Barkin of the Morristown Historical Preservation Society will lead this informative tour through the mansion and the sunken Italian gardens. Light refreshments will be served immediately following the tour.  Tickets are $20 per person.  Click on the link below to purchase tickets.  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gilded-age-morristown-foote-mansion-and-gardens-tour-tickets-59916460747
