Tour of the Month Presented by Newport History Tours.
The well-manicured lawns and carefully cultivated gardens of Newport’s Gilded Age estates were as important as the famous “cottages”. Maintaining them was a herculean effort. Join Frank Amaral, Newport Restoration Foundation Head Landscaper, and Steve Casey, arborist and owner of Casey Tree Specialists, on a walking tour that explores the stories of the gardeners, both past and present, who have worked at many of Newport’s finest homes. Tour includes a stop at a local greenhouse and a look at historic gardening tools.
