Hyde Hall

South View from Hyde Hall – Before & After

In preparation of our special events this spring and our tour and events season soon to follow, we have been hard at work on some landscape improvements at Hyde Hall.

In the fall of 2015, we spoke with Rich Sheckells, manager of Glimmerglass State Park about removing dead trees from the lakeshore area.  His crew cut these down in late February and our wonderful groundskeeper, Jenny Trahan, worked hard to trim the locust shoots.  Here are our before and after photos!

We thank the Gipson Family of Unadilla for getting the ball rolling on beautifying the grounds here.  We have benefited in so many ways from the generous support of everyone who recognizes Hyde Hall as an extraordinary place!
