Shelburne Farms Update
Hollister House’s George Schoellkopf visited Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, Vermont, in early September and shared these photographs of the gardens and the restoration work being completed on the lily pool terrace and balustrade. The current phase of the garden restorations—recovery of the lakeside terrace—is now nearing completion. The second and largest of four phases focusing mostly on repairing walls and other garden structures at Shelburne Farms, it is restoring the overlook balustrade, wall fountain, and lily pond.

Shelburne Farms also shared with us a couple of their latest renovation photos (bottom right), showing the lily pond near completion and mason Matt Tarbell at work. These two photographs were taken by Janice Heilmann on September 27.

The Garden Conservancy News reported on the restoration plans at Shelburne Farms in our fall issue a year ago. The Conservancy is supporting the effort through preservation advice and assistance.
