Tuxedo Park: A Luncheon and Presentation by George Langberg
The HSRC and Northwest Bergen History Coalition invite you to join us for

Tuxedo Park
A Luncheon and Presentation

When: Wednesday, November 1, 11:30 am
Where: The Tuxedo Club , Tuxedo Park, NY
Admission: $50 per person (plus cash bar)

Forged out of the Ramapo Mountains on the shores of Tuxedo Lake in 1886 by the wealthy tobacco hier Pierre Lorillard IV, Tuxedo Park was built as a resort haven and sportsman's paradise for society of the Gilded Age. It was the birthplace of the tuxedo jacket, and its Autumn Ball launched the social and marital careers of generations of socialites. In its bucolic landscape, renowned architects built homes in historical European styles for, among others, the Astors, Morgans, and Vanderbilts.

A man of many talents, Lorillard also managed a successful tobacco company; raced horses and sailing yachts; and funded archaeological expeditions in South America.

The story of this fascinating man will be presented by George Langberg, historian of the Town of Tuxedo. Also available at the luncheon are the award-winning trilogy of full-color, illustrated books covering Tuxedo Park's architecture, history, and landscape by Chiu Yi Hempel. A senior publishing executive and Trustee of the Preservation League of New York State, she has lived in Tuxedo Park for twenty years.

The Club will be open at 11:30 for guest to enjoy the patio. Lunch will be served at 12 noon.
