A taste of Blairsden!
Toonmoose takes you to Peapack-Gladstone, New Jersey, to visit Blairsden, the family home of C. Ledyard Blair. The house was designed and constructed in the Beaux-Arts style between 1897 and 1903 by the firm of Carrere and Hastings, with Italiante gardens designed by James Leal Greenleaf, an associate of Frederick Law Olmsted. After being inaccessible to the public for many years, in 2014 the house is the centerpiece of The Mansion In May house and garden tour. More than 50 designers came together to showcase their ideas and style as a benefit for The Joan and Edward Foley Pediatric Intensive Care Unit & The Autism and Child Development Center at Morristown Medical Center.
