The Wadsworth Legacy Tree Restoration Fund has been created to replant trees lost at these two historic landscape properties. We will accept donations in any amount, with all funds devoted to planting and maintaining new trees at both sites. Donors can also select a tree from our wish list and dedicate it to an individual or organization.
Celebrate the start-up of this important fund with wine and hors d’oeuvres at Long Hill Estate on Thursday, April 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

at Long Hill has been used in his furniture. Wadsworth Mansion
