Meadow Brook in Bloom Tours
Meadow Brook in Bloom
Join us for week-long series of community events and a special house and garden tour that celebrates all things floral at The Great Estate. Floral arrangements are provided by Emerald City Designs.
Visitors can tour the elegant rooms featuring fresh flowers while gaining insight into the fascinating life of the Dodge-Wilson family through fashion, photos and tablescapes, from Frances Dodge’s ice blue wedding dress to her trend-setting debut, complete with black orchids. Included on the tour will be The Hall’s original flower room which was once used by the head groundskeeper to arrange flowers to display throughout the house. And for the first time, visitors can see the French guest room bathroom decorated with lavender, yellow and aqua Rookwood tile. Guests can also explore The Estate’s sixteen gardens and expansive grounds during this self-guided tour.
