Hello All! Keith here. It seems there is much interest in visiting Bayou Bend. The weather is about to be nice, so let's make this happen!
I think the guided tours would be interesting and reservations are recommended. We will need a good count closer to the date. So, save the date! Adjust your RSVPs as necessary.
We will determine a gathering place to meet, possibly different than and prior to the tour start location/time. In the past some have met for breakfast prior to the meetup or a cafe after.
Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens
Bayou Bend is the MFAH house museum for American decorative arts and paintings. Displayed in the former home of Houston civic leader and philanthropist Ima Hogg (1882–1975), the collection is one of the finest showcases of American furnishings, silver, ceramics, and paintings in the world. The house is situated on 14 acres of organically maintained gardens in Houston's historic River Oaks neighborhood.
Open year-round, Bayou Bend welcomes thousands of visitors annually for tours and special programs. With the addition of the Lora Jean Kilroy Visitor and Education Center, which includes the Kitty King Powell Library and Study Center and The Shop at Bayou Bend, as well as state-of-the-art education and rental spaces, Bayou Bend has established its place in the continually growing cultural arts scene of Houston.

Just a note: Bayou Bend will not know who we are. Contacts for the meetup will be determined via this page or by email. I will "Check in" using the meetup phone app when I arrive. If you use this app, you will know someone is there and will let others know to look for you.
