Victorian Wiawaka Tour and Lunch with “Harriet Langdon Pryun Rice”

August 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$25

Join Mary Fuller’s friend Harriet Langdon Pryun Rice (portrayed by Marina Skea) for an historical tour of the grounds and buildings of Wiawaka. Harriet was one of nine women who witnessed the 1907 Wiawaka Holiday House Certificate of Incorporation and served as one the first members of the board of directors. She and husband William Gorham Rice Jr. lived in the Rice mansion which eventually became part of the Albany Institute of History and Art. The Rices’ entertained many visiting European diplomats, leaders in the realm of art and literature and other world famous personages. The Rice home was the International House of its era. Harriet’s home appears with great frequency in the society notes of the time, as Mrs. Rice was a very active hostess. (In the event of inclement weather a Wiawaka history presentation will take place indoors. You are still free to explore the grounds should you choose to do so following the presentation.) Lunch and tour $25.
