Quick Trip to the Gropius House and DeCordova Museum
Wednesday, November 14, Leaving 9:15 AM from the Depot
Join us for a very special visit to Historic New England's Walter Gropius House. Built by famed architect Walter Gropius in 1938, this house is a prototype for mid-century modern architecture, combining classic styles with new glass and chrome. Gropius House is celebrating the centennial of the Bauhaus art school in Germany, founded by Gropius, in 2019. After a tour of the house, join Historic New England staff for a behind-the-scenes discussion of plans for the centennial celebration, and upcoming collaborations with Lexington Historical Society! Then, finish your modern morning with a stroll around the nearby DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.
