Visit to The Mount

Today I went with a couple of friends to Lenox MA to visit The Mount, the home of Edith Wharton (1862-1937), which is in the process of extensive restoration.

The Mount was built in 1901-1902 in accordance with Edith Wharton's own design. (She was assisted by architects Ogden Codman, Jr. and Francis L.V. Hoppin.) Wharton lived in the house until 1911.

The Italianate walled garden at The Mount. Edith Wharton designed the estate's gardens, with assistance from her niece, Beatrix Farrand (1872-1959), a respected landscape designer in her own right.
