While the Preserve is temporarily closed, we are posting photos of our favorite places on the Guggenheim Estate – from Hempstead House, Castle Gould, and Falaise to the Great Lawn, woods, pond, and Woodland Playground. To remind us of wonderful events in our future, we’re posting images of past events that define our mission to bring new life to this spectacular historic estate for the benefit of the community. We kook forward to seeing everyone here again, after the health crisis is over.
Stay home – stay safe!
