Horatio Gates Warner built the Warner Castle in 1854 to resemble his ancestral castle in Scotland. On Wednesday, September 24, the Rochester Civic Garden Center will host the Warner Castle Soiree as a late-summer celebration of recently revived portions of Alling DeForest's original design for the area's courtyards and sunken garden. Guided tours will be given of the well-preserved interior, and attendees can peruse the home's horticultural library and chat with fellow gardening enthusiasts.
Warner Castle, the home of the Rochester Civic Garden Center, is located at 5 Castle Park. Tickets are $12. The event begins at 6 p.m. Call 473-5130 or visit rcgc.org for more information.
