Neighborhood
“The Winterthur estate at www.Winterthur.org has a lot to offer; the vast and well appointed mansion often includes special exhibits. The current exhibit through January 7th, 2018 is about forgeries and counterfit objects, including a fake Babe Ruth baseball glove that sold for $200,000, faux fashion and fake vintage wines. On a sunny day, their gardens and the beautiful landscape makes a visit even more worth while. ”
