    Take a Private Tour of the Salisbury House



    Join other Leadership Institute alumni for a private tour of the Salisbury House and Gardens. Curator and historian, Megan Stout Sibbel, PhD, will provide a special presentation on the Salisbury House library that stores a trove of rare, limited and first-edition books.

    About Salisbury House and Gardens: The 42-room manor estate was built in the 1920s by cosmetics magnate Carl Weeks and his wife, Edith. The house is filled with the Weeks Family's worldly collections, ranging from rare editions of literature from William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, James Joyce and D.H. Lawrence, early edition Bibles and Books of Mormon, art collections spanning the globe from Renaissance Europe to Midwestern modernism, Native American art, musical instruments, and more.

    Thank you to Meredith for their generous support of this event.
