American Young Georgians

The American Young Georgians is an association of young adults under the age of forty who appreciate the best of British art, architecture, and design. We are the young members of the American Friends of the Georgian Group, and we too work with The Georgian Group in London to foster the appreciation and preservation of architecture, art, and design from the reigns of George I to George IV in England. We work together with the AFGG but we are also our own entity, organizing our own relaxed gatherings and events and getting together to network, socialize, and have fun.

For more information, contact the co-leaders of the group, Lansing Moore and Hillary Mazanec, at afgg.young.georgians@gmail.com.

Upcoming Events:

For our autumn excursion, will be visiting Coe Hall/the Planting Fields Estate near Oyster Bay, Long Island on Saturday, November 5, 2016. Check out the website here: http://www.plantingfields.org

We will have a private group tour of the historic mansion led by Executive Director Henry B. Joyce and picnic (inside or out, depending on the weather), and are currently planning transportation. Please stay tuned for more details. The grounds and mansion are absolutely gorgeous and rich in history. Our previous excursions have been great successes and we hope that many are able to join us at Coe Hall!

Planting Fields, the former estate of insurance magnate William Robertson Coe Standard Oil heiress Mai Rogers Coe and is one of the few remaining Gold Coast estates on Long Island's North Shore that retains its original 409 acres as well as its historic buildings and landscape. Rolling lawns, formal gardens, hiking trails and specimen plantings, as well as the Camellia Greenhouse and the Main Greenhouse, with its unique seasonal displays, are a treat for visitors year round.

Coe Hall contains many original pieces and furnishings once belonging to the Coe family, including the restored Louis XVI Reception Room. The mostly Elizabethan style interior of the Tudor Revival mansion is a showcase of artistry and craftsmanship in its wood and stone carvings, ironwork, 13th - 19th century stained glass windows and original commissioned murals by American artists Robert H. Chanler and Everett Shinn.

Past events include:

  • Lecture by architect Martin Brandwein at Clinton Howell Antiques
  • Private tour of Edgewater and Montgomery Place
  • Private Tour of the George F. Baker House, 69 East 93rd Street, Carnegie Hill
  • Exclusive Lecture given by Francis Morrone at a private Park Ave. apartment on architecture in Georgian New York City
