lost gardens of the main line april 6

Dolobran, Penshurst, Woodcrest — these are names of some of the great gardens and estates of the Main Line that are no more, but will be conjured by Jeff Groff, Director of Public Programs at Winterthur, using historic photographs and a discussion of changing garden styles and the work of noteworthy landscape architects such as the Olmstead brothers and Ellen Biddle Shipman from the 1870’s to the 1930’s. With his many special interests including garden history and preservation of landscape from the 18th to mid-20th centuries, including garden features and ornaments, he is the ideal guide to bring back to life these vanished scenes for the Narberth Area Garden Club on April 7, 2016, 7:15 p.m., at the Narberth Borough Building, 2nd floor, 100 Conway Avenue, Narberth, Pa., 19072 (Haverford Avenue entrance.)
