About Wave Hill's 50th Anniversary

This is a pivotal moment in Wave Hill’s history, a time to look back, and look ahead.

As we celebrate this milestone in the life of a much-loved institution, we invite you to share your most treasured moments at Wave Hill through this interactive Family Album. The personal photos and stories of Members, visitors, gardeners, artists, performers, teachers, students, interns, staff—the entire Wave Hill family!—are surely the most fitting tribute to the many ways in which the gardens continue to inspire us all.

To get you started, click the ‘filter’ tab above, and then choose the theme, season or decade you’d like to view.
