On Sunday, June 26th from 11am until 2pm,  join us for a self guided  tour of the spectacular interior of the Manley-Lefevre home built in 1812  and the historic gardens designed by Charles Downing Lay in 1915. On the National Register for Historic Places, view the light fixtures brought back from La Scala, the tavern that Ethan Allen used to frequent and the original engravings in the Tea House and fountains. For those of you who would like to join us for lunch we will be eating in the garden.  In case of rain we will move inside.   Staff will be on site to answer any questions you might have.   This is the first time that the house itself has been opened up to the public since it was built.
