Timothy Tilghman Untermyer Gardens:
Past, Present and Future

February 2, 2022
7:00PM
Location: Zoom

On Wednesday, February 2 nd , 2022, at 7:00 PM, the Greenwich Botanical Center will present a
talk by Timothy Tilghman, Untermyer Gardens: Past, Present. Timothy is a horticulturalist and
head gardener at Untermyer Gardens, and he will introduce us to this garden and public park in
Yonkers, NY. In 1899 Samuel Untermyer purchased the Greystone estate, transforming the
gardens and greenhouses into some of the most celebrated gardens in America. Designed by
the Beaux Arts architect William Welles Bosworth around 1915, the gardens sprawled over 150
acres overlooking the Hudson River. You will learn about the restoration of 43 acres of this
treasure and how it is being cared for today by the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy. Timothy
will touch on the history of Untermyer Gardens, then present a virtual tour of the completed
historical restorations, the upcoming historical restorations and finally the non-historic
creations we plan to execute.
