In the Greenhouse -

Marjorie Merriweather Post had the greenhouse constructed to house her extensive collection of exotic orchids. Enjoy a guided tour of the working greenhouse and learn more about its history, Post’s infatuation with orchids, and the exotic blooms and fragrances on display.

 

In the Mansion:

Marjorie Post maintained strong ties to the eighteenth-century French decorating style that she developed in the 1920s, transferring much of this look to her new home at Hillwood in the mid-1950s. This did not keep her from updating her Georgian-style mansion with the most modern conveniences that money could buy. Journey through her final home to experience the elegant French drawing room, the efficient and “high-tech” kitchen and pantry, and the many personal touches that made Hillwood one of Washington’s most memorable homes.
