After ten years of hosting “An Insider’s View” as an interior tour of architecturally and historically significant homes, the Southampton History Museum is stepping outside this year to carry on our beloved tradition. Please join us for “An Outsider’s View,” a tour of Southampton’s most beautiful gardens and landscape settings.
With designs ranging from a structured formal garden of clipped hedges and detailed gates to a whimsical waterfront cottage garden bursting with flowers and native flora, each setting will provide an interesting study of the interplay between the landscape and the home’s architecture and history.
