PACNY has arranged for a tour of the Lorenzo State Historic Site in Cazenovia, including the house and the gardens. This magnificent house was completed in 1808 by John Lincklaen, the founder of Cazenovia and an agent for the Holland Land Company. Possibly influenced by Philip Hooker, a prominent Albany architect, Lorenzo is a textbook example of the refined neoclassical style of architecture so prominent in the early 19th century.
The house remained in the hands of the Lincklaen family and their descendants for five generations until the New York State Historic Trust acquired the estate in the 1960s. With a well-documented interior, the house boasts elegant rooms showcasing a century and a half of occupancy.
The tour of the house and the garden will be led by Barbara Bartlett, the Director of Lorenzo State Historic Site. Following the tour of the house and the garden, we will retire to an adjoining building on the estate for a brief movie about the history of the site and for light refreshments.
Please join PACNY for an enjoyable spring outing to a glorious country estate, and see one of Central New York’s true architectural gems.
