The Woodlands, William Hamilton’s 18th century estate, was inspired by his travels to England in the 1780s and is known to be the first Federal style architecture and one of the best examples of English landscape design in the United States. Thomas Jefferson said of The Woodlands that it is “the only rival which I have known in America to what may be seen in England.”

Please note: There will be no vehicular traffic or parking allowed on the grounds for this event. Please see the visit page of our website for more information about transit options.
