Annual Naumkeag Garden Party
Saturday, July 25th in Stockbridge
By: Philip S. Kampe - Jul 22, 2015
We all love Naumkeag, located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Why not show your love by attending the Annual Garden Party, a fundraiser, that takes place from 4-7pm on Saturday, July 25th.
Naumkeag, a summer cottage of the Choate family (1870's), was designed by McKim, Mead & White. The house of 34 rooms, open to the public, contains original furniture, artwork and ceramics that were collected by John Hodges Choate (1832-1917) from all parts of the world. Mr. Choate served in England from 1899 to 1905, as U.S. Ambassador to the court of St. James. Naumkeag is going through a 4.5 million dollar project to return the entire landscape to its original bucolic beauty.
The annual Garden Party at Naumkeag is a way to participate in the project. The Garden Party takes place on the property. The theme this year is Italian inspired. Cocktails will prevail at the Bellini bar. The Allen Livermore Trio will provide live jazz and a dance performance by the Berkshire Pulse Dance Company will cap off Saturday afternoons delights.
