Bequeathing Beauty:
Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens

American heiress & philanthropist Marjorie Merriweather Post donated her lavish Hillwood Estate as a sanctuary dedicated to the celebration of beauty.

Skirting the edge of Rock Creek Park in the northwest sector of Washington, D.C., stands the magnificent home and gardens of arguably the most successful businesswoman, socialite, philanthropist, and art collector America has ever known. With equal passion devoted to her many interests, Marjorie Merriweather Post ensured the public could experience art once reserved for the upper echelons of society.
