Tribute Gifts

There are many treasured spots waiting to be discovered among the gardens and paths at Hillwood. A favorite is the Friendship Walk. This English garden walk, lined with boxwood, rhododendrons, and azaleas, was conceived of by friends of Marjorie Post to honor her lifetime of philanthropy.
