Docent Tours


Every Wednesday between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm, the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate is open for public touring. Docents from the Friends of Long Hill lead guided tours of the Mansion; they provide a narrative that details the history of the Estate and the recent five million dollar renovation. Furniture donated by the Wadsworth Family is on display in the History Room. Tours are free of charge. The Long Hill Estate is accessible to people with disabilities, and groups are welcome.
