Between 1905 and 1932, George Eastman filled his house and conservatory with thousands of bulbs ordered from Holland. Today, that tradition lives on. Filled with the sweet smells of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, amaryllis, and freesias, the Eastman House (located at 900 East Ave) will celebrate its 20th year of "Dutch Connection," a two-week display re-creating the "virtual springtime" Eastman brought to his home every year. In addition to the flower display, Eastman artifacts from 1914 will be on display throughout the second floor of the house.
The display will be open to view Friday, February 14-Sunday, March 2 during normal museum hours (Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.). "Dutch Connection" is free with regular museum admission: $5 for students (with IDs), $10 for seniors, and $12 for ages 13 and up. For more information, visit eastmanhouse.org or call 271-3361.
