January 1, 2023 | 10:00 am - December 30, 2024 | 3:00 pm

Book your tour now!


Travel back to the 1920s and explore the Gold Coast estate of English immigrant W.R. Coe, and his wife, American heiress Mai Rogers Coe! Learn about the Coe Family, their staff, and the artists and architects who designed this historic home and surrounding landscape. 

Tour-goers will be guided throughout the house by a docent and be immersed in evocative interiors that’ll transport them to a different time and place. Made to look as if it stood for centuries, the architecture and design of Coe Hall is a showcase of artistry and craftsmanship that features a distinctly American aesthetic through whimsical interior decoration by Elsie de Wolfe, original ironwork commissions by Samuel Yellin, and murals painted by artists Robert Winthrop Chanler and Everett Shinn. 

Visit select rooms on the main and second floors as well as the Cloister Garden, and witness this architectural marvel designed by Walker and Gillette over a century ago. After your tour, stop by the Visitor Center and bring a piece of Planting Fields home with you!

Guided tours last approximately 60 minutes, and the last entry is at 3pm. Please note that each tour will have a maximum of 25 attendees.
