The AFGG Holiday Party and Annual General Meeting
The Baker House, 67 East 93rd Street

Our holiday party and annual general meeting will be held at the beautiful George F. Baker House in Carnegie Hill, the highest point in Manhattan. We'll toast the holidays and have the opportunity to explore the immaculately preserved 1920s townhouse designed by Delano & Aldrich and built for one of New York’s most important bankers. Our event will be in what is now the private home of Richard H. Jenrette; his foundation, Classical American Homes Preservation Trust, is also based here.

Speaker David Wren and Ardrossan: the Last Great Estate on the Philadelphia Main Line
The Colonial Dames of America, 417 East 61st Street

David Nelson Wren, an independent scholar, will present his new book, a history of the Philadelphia Main Line estate Ardrossan and the Montgomery family who built it. (The Montgomerys were the basis for Philip Barry’s 1939 play, The Philadelphia Story, featuring Katharine Hepburn, who went on to star in the film.) At its height, the estate encompassed roughly 760 acres of rolling Pennsylvania hills, and the fifty-room Georgian-style manor house, still owned by the family, stands as a glorious reminder of the Gilded Age. Ardrossan was designed in 1911 by Horace Trumbauer, who also designed the Elms in Newport and Whitemarsh Hall outside Philadelphia. The first-floor rooms, decorated by the London-based firm of White, Allom & Company, are essentially unaltered since 1913 and feature the family’s art collection, including ancestral portraits by Thomas Sully and hunt scenes and landscapes by Charles Morris Young.

This event is co-sponsored with The Colonial Dames of America and the Royal Oak Foundation.
