The Hood College Office of Alumni and Constituent Engagement invites you
to tour and explore the historic Hillwood estate,
former home of style icon and heiress, Marjorie Merriweather Post.

 Date: Sunday, November 14, 2021
Time: 1:00 p.m.
Place: Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens
4155 Linnean Avenue,
NW Washington, DC 20008

Immerse yourself in the Jazz Age through fashion, decorative art, jewelry, and design that made Marjorie Merriweather Post one of the most influential women of the 1920s. Post, Hillwood’s founder, was an iconic tastemaker during the era known as the Roaring Twenties. One hundred years later, Hillwood celebrates Post’s influence on this period with a special exhibition focused on her impeccable attire, impressive art collection, and sumptuous design entitled Roaring Twenties: The Life and Style of Marjorie Merriweather Post.

Admission price for this exhibit, which includes access to the entire Hillwood estate, is $15.00 per person, payable here. Please put “Hillwood” in the “event attending” field. Space for this group outing is limited; we ask that you RSVP by Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

Hillwood requires all guests to wear masks when touring indoor spaces regardless of Coviod-19 vaccination status. For more information about Hillwood, it’s collections, directions, and parking, please visit their website. For questions regarding this event, please email
