Ted Kozlowski is the engaging and knowledgeable Director of Lasdon Park, Arboretum and Veterans Memorial, a magnificent 234-acre property owned by Westchester County. The three story Colonial -style main house was built in 1933 and modeled after George Washington's Virginia residence, Mount Vernon. In 1940 the property was sold to William and Mildred Lasdon. So, who were the Lasdons and how did their property become this beautiful public park? Come learn the stories that underlie this gorgeous landscape just down the road in Somers from the man who has managed it and helped to make it the showplace it now is.
