SATURDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Bartow-Pell Mansion in the Bronx


Terraced Garden 

Located in the Bronx, just ten miles from Manhattan, Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, with its splendid late Federal style exterior and Greek Revival period rooms, is a hidden gem set within New York City’s largest park – Pelham Bay.  As the only grand 19th-century country house still in existence overlooking the bay, the Museum provides an important link to the social and architectural history of New York City.

The Bartow-Pell Museum is situated within a 60-acre New York City Landmark Historic District and is surrounded by a “forever wild” zone.  The six-acre site boasts a formal, terraced garden, designed by Delano & Aldrich in 1916, a circa 1840 Carriage House, a Children’s Organic Garden, and the Pell Memorial Gravesite.
