After a social lunch at SoHo Restaurant on Broad St we will explore a seldom seen historic townhome on South Broad Street that is full of vintage art and a secret high-style European garden. Our host, Ron Ernst, a collector of vintage art has invited us to his circa 1890 townhome and will showcase some of his large vintage sporting and landscape collections. Ron will share his passion for classic Florida paintings, including works of some of the Highwaymen on display. Our guest speaker Beth Weidner, the former director of Maclay Gardens, will talk about the fine points of Ron’s gorgeous secret garden behind his home and give you tips for your own backyard.
We'll end our day with a little wine and coffee, ready to share restaurant recommendations and the workings of the evening’s Sip and Stroll, Thomasville’s monthly celebration on the bricks. After dusk, walk down to the amphitheater for a free concert.
