Hillwood Estate and Museum Tour

On Thursday, June 25th, several members of CREW DC toured Hillwood, the beautiful estate and home of Marjorie Merriweather Post (the only child of Charles Post, who founded the Post cereal empire). Her collection includes Russian imperial art, French eighteenth-century decorative art, and Marjorie’s personal collection of apparel, jewelry, and accessories. After our tour, we had a lovely luncheon at the Hillwood café and had time to explore the magnificent gardens. A collection of Marjorie’s stunning clothing is now on view in a special exhibition called “Ingénue to Icon.” Our members were delighted with the tour!
