Hillwood Museum and Gardens
The Hillwood Estate, Museum, and Gardens as they are seen today were the vision of Marjorie Merriweather Post. One of the richest women of the 20th Century whose father founded the Postum Cereal Company (a.k.a., Post Cereal) and the company was passed down to her. The intent Marjorie was to leave Hillwood as museum for the public to visit. Today, this vision continues and Hillwood is now open for visitors to enjoy.
Marjorie had a passion for Orchids with some 2,000 specimens in this easy to walk through and growing greenhouse on the estate.
