Open House at the Mansions

August 21 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In partnership with Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden Museum (RJD) and the James Arnold Mansion (JAMI)

The two mansions connected by County Street and marriage (James Arnold married Sarah Rotch, daughter of William Rotch Jr.) are co-hosting a free day of activities. RJD features tours of the house, lemonade on the terrace, and lawn games. At the James Arnold Mansion, visitors can tour the house and grounds, learn about the Arnolds’ passion for horticulture and their once 11-acre Garden, hear about future landscape plans, and enjoy some fruit punch and cookies.

Learn more about DATMA’s Shelter 2022 programming and public art tours within walking distance at the event.
