The next time you consider a visit to Mansfield’s gem of a public garden, Kingwood Center Gardens, why not do some touring as well?

Kingwood offers three tours designed to interest history and garden lovers alike.

Tours of the main house, Kingwood Hall, have been going on since the fall of 1953. The house was the home of industrialist Charles Kelly King, who left a $3 million trust fund to transform Kingwood into a “…public garden and park to promote interests in horticulture, literature, music, and fine arts for residents of Mansfield and surrounding areas.”

Tours are also available for the statues and fountains at Kingwood, and also for the Kingwood-owned Townsend House, directly across Park Avenue West from Kingwood Hall.

Five tour opportunities remain this month. For more information on tours, click on any of the following links:
