Member Exclusive! Gilded Age Giants: The Architectural Legacy of McKim, Mead, and White @ Naumkeag, St. Paul’s Church, and The Mount
Aug 16 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Few names are more closely tied to Gilded Age grandeur than McKim, Mead, and White, best known for iconic buildings such as Pennsylvania Station and mansions, campuses, and libraries up and down the east coast.

McKim, Mead, and White also left their mark in the Berkshires. Join noted architectural historian Richard Guy Wilson for behind-the-scenes tours of two such architectural gems: Naumkeag and St. Paul’s Church. Wilson will share insights about the evolution of the firm’s signature style and about their influence on Edith Wharton’s design of The Mount. Along the way, Wilson will also point out other McKim, Mead, and White commissions, such as the Stockbridge Casino and Gusty Gables in Lenox.

The tour will meet first at The Mount and travel to the two other sites by shuttle bus.  The evening will conclude back on The Mount’s Terrace for an al fresco supper and lively conversation. This program is presented in partnership with The Trustees of Reservations.

Space for this program is extremely limited.  To register, please call Lindsay Codwise at 413-551-5112.
