News-Antique.com - May 10,2010 - GRANVILLE, OH—May 10, 2010---Antiques & Gardening at Bryn Du will open its doors for the fourth annual event this Friday, May 14 at the historic Granville Mansion. Proceeds from the event help support the Bryn Du's restoration and preservation as a National Register of Historic Places landmark.
During the event, Bryn Du Mansion's porches, walkways and lawn will be highlighted by a variety of garden art, statuary and plants, while the Mansion, Carriage House and adjacent Field House will host antique dealers from more than a dozen states, according to Bryn Du Mansion executive director Bruce Cramer.
It’s an event well suited for the historic property.
"The show itself has emerged a premiere opportunity not only to display such wonderful artifacts, but also allows the public to share in one of Granville's unique architectural treasures— the Bryn Du Mansion and Great Lawn,” notes Bryn Du Commission President Candi Moore.
"Coincidentally," she observes, "May is designated 'National Historic Preservation Month,' and the Village's purchase of this historic property as a community asset is a good example of how communities can work together not only to preserve such iconic properties, but also help them become vital modern-day venues that continue to contribute to the quality of life in the Village of Granville."
The 19th-century Federal-style estate has served as a community venue for educational and cultural meetings and antique and art shows, athletic and social gatherings, weddings, and polo matches since its creation in 2002.
A preview brunch is set for Friday, May 14 to open the show. General admission to Antiques & Gardening at Bryn Du begins Friday at noon and continues until 6 p.m. Saturday, hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday hours are from noon to 5 p.m. Preview brunch admission is $20 and includes readmission to the show throughout the weekend. General admission tickets are $8 and are also good for the duration of the event.
A short drive east from downtown Columbus, Bryn Du is located east of the Village of Granville at 537 Jones Road.
Bryn Du Mission Statement
Bryn Du is a long-term asset for the community that will provide a place for cultural, recreational, and educational activities for people of all ages. Bryn Du will be preserved and enhanced to contribute to the vitality and quality of life of the Granville Community.
