Restore and preserve the buildings, furnishings, collections, and grounds of a national treasure -- Ten Chimneys, the estate created by Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Develop Ten Chimneys as a resource and inspiration for American theatre and arts. Offer public programs consistent with the Lunts' interests and values while maintaining the integrity and intimacy of this extraordinary estate.
Seventy-five years ago, the most revered acting team in American theatre, Alfred Lunt & Lynn Fontanne, conjured a haven called Ten Chimneys. Created with the same humanizing wit and passion for perfection that distinguished their stage performances, Ten Chimneys is the Lunts' most enduring and tangible legacy. For decades their idyllic retreat beguiled and inspired the country's finest actors, writers, designers, directors, and artists. No invitation was more coveted. Ten Chimneys opened to the public in May of 2003. More than an exquisite time capsule, Ten Chimneys fosters artistic creation, education, inspiration, and leadership in the 21st century - just as it did for so much of the 20th century. Programs offered include Education Programs, Retreats and Conferences, and Tours and Exhibitions.
This is my 7th volunteer year at Ten Chimneys, and although I have enjoyed all my other volunteer experiences, Ten Chimneys tops the list!
Ten Chimneys has a superior welcoming atmosphere for volunteers and tour guests alike. After being a guest on a tour, the beauty of the estate and story of the The Lunts were too fascinating to forget.
Besides meeting and enjoying the delightful tour guests (local & out-of-town visitors), I am cherishing all the wonderful friendships of co-volunteers & Ten Chimneys' staff.
This volunteer match website is ideal for sharing the Ten Chimneys' opportunity. The information is well stated, and I hope others will become part of the worthwhile Ten Chimneys' volunteer experience.
