Hills & Dales Estate trip

April 28 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Hills & Dales Estate

Our next O.F.F. (over 50 fellowship) trip is Thursday. April 28th. We will leave the church at 9:00 and will also stop to eat lunch before our return. 

We will make a day trip to Hills and Dales Estate in LaGrange. 
Hills and Dales Estate is a magnificent home and garden completed in 1916. It is the Callaway family home. The 13,000 square foot Georgian Italian villa home was designed to flow gracefully into its gardens, which have adorned the terraces of the hill for more than 180 years and are considered one of the best-preserved 19th-century pre-Civil War gardens in the country. 

Currently in bloom in the garden is:  Azaleas, Candytuft, Carolina Silverbell, Cattleya, Cross Vine, Cut leaf Lilac, Dianthus, Dogwood, Fringe Tree (Chinese & Native), Iris, Loropetalum, Native Azaleas, Rhododendron, Roses, Spanish Bluebells, Spirea, Snowball Viburnum

Greenhouse: Anthuriums, Amaryllis, Begonias, Bougainvillea, Callas, Impatiens, Orchids, Stephanotis

House and Garden Admission:

Adults $20.00

Seniors/Military $18.00

Hills and Dales work hard to make the estate accessible. The first floor of the home is fully accessible however, touring the upper floors requires the ability to climb stairs. For visitors unable to navigate the second and third floors on the home, photographic tours of the house are available.

The historic terrace gardens are only partially accessible for wheelchairs as they feature pea gravel pathways and stone steps. If this is a concern please see Bro. Mark for more info. The Garden tour only is $10.00
