Guest Speaker Series: Holly Watson, “Linwood Gardens”

Thursday, March 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at the Holland Land Office Museum for the next edition of our Guest Speaker Series on Thursday, March 30th at 7 pm. The presenter will be Holly Watson of the Linwood Gardens.
Linwood Gardens is a rare example of a Western New York country place from the early 1900s with a unique horticultural history and enduring connections to its community. The summer house and array of garden spaces reflect the several generations who have worked and lived there through the decades. Each spring, the public is invited to visit during the annual Tree Peony Festival of Flowers to view the blossoms and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the property. Join family member Holly Watson for a behind-the-scenes look at the history of the people, peonies, and property during this presentation.
Holly Watson is a fifth-generation family member of Linwood Gardens. She grew up in Avon, NY, and graduated from the University of Vermont in 2010. In her spare time, she works at Linwood Gardens as a gardener and volunteer coordinator, manages its social media, and serves on its volunteer board of directors.
Admission is $5 or $3 for museum members. Please contact the museum at 585-343-4727 or hollandlandoffice@gmail.com if you plan to attend.
