South Garden by the Main House in spring.
  • This event has passed.

Sunday, February 7

Explore the fascinating 80-year history of Mt. Cuba Center as it transitioned from Lammot and Pamela Copeland’s Mt. Cuba estate to a public garden devoted to native plants. Historic photographs of their home and gardens, architectural blueprints of landscape designs, and family correspondence tell the story of creating the lush landscape we see today and shed light on their vision of preserving the northern Delaware Piedmont.
