Elizabeth Wayland-Morgan, executive director of the Museum, said, “We are thrilled to have permission from Suffolk County and New York State to begin slowly reopening to the public.
“Our gardeners have been busy working in the gardens and flower beds since May 15, doing spring cleanup and planting new roses and annual flowers. Our crew has been tending to the property, mowing acres of lawn and trimming trees.
“The work is still in progress, but the Mansion and Estate grounds are looking beautiful once again. We’re ready and eager to welcome summer visitors.”
