One hundred years after its construction, architect Paul Bentel and Father Leo Goldade will lead this rare behind the scenes look at Ormston, the former estate of utility mogul John E. Aldred. Owned by the Basilian Order of Saint Josaphat since 1944, the estate includes a Tudor-inspired mansion by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue and picturesque landscape by the Olmsted Brothers.
