Join Us in Our Mission

After the Neoclassical mansion fell into disrepair, sold to wrecker for just $35, and was demolished, local preservationists recovered its architectural fragments and secured generous funding from Reader’s Digest co-founder Lila Acheson Wallace to move and restore the house. Since these original supporters saved Boscobel, generous members and donors have kept it vital.

Today, Boscobel hosts lively events, innovative exhibitions, talks by the world’s top design experts, and engaging programs and activities for families. Be a Boscobel Insider by joining or renewing your Membership today!
