The 50th Annual
The Hammond Museum & Japanese Stroll Garden is a unique institution located in northern Westchester County. It was a established over 50 years ago by Natalie Hays Hammond to stimulate interest in the arts and the cultural traditions between the East and West.
The museum features exhibitions, music, dance, theater and a wide variety of cultural programs.
The Japanese Stroll Garden is a place of natural beauty and tranquility. We feature guided tours, classes and workshops pertaining to the environment, gardening and personal reflection.
The Hammond’s Main House is also the home of our traditional tea room. This was fabricated in Kyoto Japan, transported here and re-assembled. This room is a place where schools of tea can come together to learn and demonstrate this meaningful Japanese cultural tradition.
In celebrating our 50th annual Moon Viewing, the Hammond will recognize the past presidents of the Board of Trustees with the Natalie Hays Hammond Appreciation Award. Their hard work and dedication has kept and carried this organization forward in it’s purpose to continue to provide high-quality programs, interesting exhibits and a beautiful meditation garden.
