Following Nature’s Lead.

Longue Vue’s eight acres of gardens – and matching residential interiors – were the masterwork of 20th-century landscape designer Ellen Biddle Shipman and home to civic and philanthropic visionaries Edith and Edgar Stern.

Today, Longue Vue is committed to honoring the legacies of Shipman and the Stern family as a space for personal growth, social progress, and communal healing through the beauty of nature.

We invite you to explore our grounds and ponder the human relationship with nature and design. All in the exceptional peace of a breathtaking estate and a remarkable document of 20th-century American society, politics, and arts.

Your house, your gardens.

PROGRAMS

Longue Vue offers engagement opportunities for all ages. We host community events, weekly wellness classes, seasonal garden workshops, and children’s gardens-based education.
