Highfield Hall & Gardens COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends,

We at Highfield Hall & Gardens hope that you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe during this difficult period. Like so many other organizations, we have taken the COVID-19 threat seriously, and while many of us are still adapting to this new normal, we want to make sure you, our valued supporters, are aware of our operational plan moving forward.

As of Saturday, March 14, Highfield Hall & Gardens closed its winter exhibition to public viewing and have postponed all classes and programming scheduled for March and April. Beginning Monday, March 23, Highfield staff will be working from home but remain fully operational as we continue to process memberships and provide administrative services for you.

Given the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 outbreak we are unable to commit to an opening date for our much-anticipated spring exhibition 60/60: Over Sixty Pieces of Art by Women Over Sixty, which will showcase many local artists; however, we are working now to make the images from this beautifully curated show available online and through social media. We hope that it will be a respite and source of inspiration for all of us confined at home.

Like everyone, we will continue to assess the situation as it evolves and will post updates on our website. In the meantime, our grounds remain free and open dawn to dusk and we invite you to stroll “Falmouth’s Public Garden” and embrace the solace nature can offer as you wander through our historic gardens, walking trails, and whimsical Stickwork Sculpture, A Passing Fancy by Patrick Dougherty.

“I go to nature to be soothed, healed and have my senses put in order.”
– John Burroughs

Highfield is fundamentally about community, and as a community we will overcome this challenge together. We sincerely appreciate and thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to welcoming you back to Highfield Hall & Gardens very soon. Stay well and be safe.
