Limited Capacity seats available

Join us for a day at Filoli. Filoli is recognized as one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century, and welcomes the public to this remarkable 654–acre property, including the 36,000 square foot Georgian country house and spectacular 16–acre English Renaissance garden. Located 30 miles south of San Francisco, Filoli is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Designed by Willis Polk and noted for its elegant interiors, the House holds an extensive collection of 17th and 18th century English antiques. Special rooms of interest include the Butler's Pantry and Kitchen with the walk-in safe, the wood paneled library, and the 1925 Ernest Peixotto paintings in the Ballroom.

The tours of the house will be led by the Collection Manager, Julie Bly DeVere, and will incorporate discussion of the house’s conservation and collection care challenges. Many members of the Bay Area Art Conservation Guild have worked on conservation projects at Filoli.

The tours of the garden will not only be breathtaking--much will be in bloom in May-- but will also showcase conservation of a historical formal garden.
