2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Mill Green Museum & Mill,
In our new exhibition, Welwyn Garden City: By Wisdom and Design, we will be looking at how Ebenezer Howard’s vision was put into practice by the founders of the Second Garden City Company and in particular the lead architect Louis de Soisson. It is a chance to see objects from Welwyn Hatfield’s museum collection as well as some loaned original material from Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies (HALS) and the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation relating to the foundation and early years of Welwyn Garden City.
Howard wanted to create a place which embodied the best elements of town living, without the poor conditions that the industrial revolution had produced, and combine them with the benefits of country living. A marriage of town and country: a Garden City.
Children (aged 2 to 16) – 50p
