Description: Westbury House and its surrounding landscape and gardens are a witness to the mastery of the full vocabulary of the classical tradition by its designer George A. Crawley (like Robert and James Adams and other 18th century English designers and architects). Join educator and volunteer docent Gene Lanzaro for a two-part tour of Westbury House and the gardens and discover Crawley's use and command of ornamental motifs of ancient Greece and Rome at the Gardens.
