Sunken Garden Poetry Festival: Poetry & Pets for Kids

Our founder, Theodate Pope Riddle, loved her pets almost as much as she loved Hill-Stead! Here is a photo of her with her dog, Jim Jam, named after writer Henry James (1843–1916). Enjoy a drop-in activity where families can compose poems to celebrate their four-legged companions! Bring a photo of your pet (leashed dogs welcome) and create a rhyme to immortalize your love.
