Historic gardens lecture on April 6

Artist, garden designer, and historic gardens consultant Rob Fuoco will present an illustrated lecture on Victorian gardens and new thinking in historic landscapes on Thursday, April 6, at the Butler-McCook House & Garden at 396 Main Street.

Mr. Fuoco oversees the historic gardens at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford and has authored an extensive historic grounds report on the Nook Farm neighborhood.

The event is sponsored by the Antiquarian & Landmarks Society, a statewide cultural organization that operates a network of historic house museums, including the Butler-McCook house. The cost: none for A&L members, $6 for non-members. Reservations are suggested, so please call (860) 522-1806.

Also on April 6, the Butler-McCook House’s Aetna gallery will host the opening of "A Photographer’s Eye: H. Robert Thiesfield’s Hartford Images." The opening was originally scheduled for last month, but a snowstorm forced postponement.
