This First Friday, May 3rd 6-8pm, explore the Heurich House Museum and celebrate Spring in our Conservatory with botanical coloring sheets and local DC botanical artist, Emily Paluska of Revery Paper Flora. Her creations can be seen all over DC, and on Instagram. The museum’s Castle Garden and Carriage House gallery featuring “HOME/BREWED: How the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. Witnessed DC History” will also be open for visitors to enjoy.
Although the Heurich family, had a beautiful private garden in the city, DC in the summer would be oppressively hot, so they escaped to their farm or travelled Europe. Christian Heurich purchased the land in Prince George’s Country in 1886 and turned it into a working dairy farm where he bred prize-winning dairy cows. After the land was sold in 1951 by Amelia Heurich, it was turned into what is currently Prince George’s plaza in Hyattsville, Maryland.
This event is free and open to the public. Drinks and snacks will be available for purchase during the event.
