Take a guided tour of Whitehouse, formerly the home of Ellen Battell Stoeckel and her husband, Carl, and now the home of the Yale Summer School of Music/Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. The Stoeckels built the Music Shed, where concerts are held, and Ellen’s will left her estate in trust for Yale’s use. Tours start at the back door, on the campus side of the house. Tour groups are limited in size; registration (recommended) starts at 12:15 on the porch.
This event is part of the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival’s summer open house, which also includes a concert for children at 1:30, an ice cream social at 2:00 and “Broadway Tails,” presented by Tony Award-winning animal trainer William Berloni at 3:00, all at the Music Shed.
Note that the “Road Closed” sign on Route 272 South (Litchfield Road) applies to through traffic only. All events can be reached before encountering the block at Estey Road (about 4.5 miles south of town).
