Garden club tours historic site Wednesday
CAZENOVIA — McConnellsville Garden Club will tour the Lorenzo State Historic Site Mansion, 17 Rippleton Road, on Wednesday, Sept. 13, at 10 a.m.
There is a $4 fee for the tour. Built in 1807 by Dutch-born John Lincklaen, it is believed the house was named after an Italian artist as Lincklaen was “enamored” with Italian artistry and architecture. The 87-acre site was donated to the state by his descendants in 1968.
The mansion overlooks Cazenovia Lake and includes Ellen Shipman formal gardens, dark aisle arboretum, a gift shop, visitor’s center, and secret gardens throughout the estate.
Lunch will be held at the Lincklaen House, 72 Albany St.. Hosts are Marilyn Theriault and Elaine Lovelace.
Founded in 1932, the garden club is comprised of members from McConnellsville, Camden, Constantia, West Monroe, and the north shore of Oneida Lake who are interested in gardening, horticulture, ecology and expanding on their knowledge and beauty of gardening.
