The public is invited to attend and tickets are currently on sale.

    The Phinney Design Group will be speaking on the restoration project and will outline the plans to restore Fuller House. There is a complete rendering of the project that is on display in the parlor of Fuller House.

    Wiawaka Center for Women is a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to enriching the lives of women through wellness, learning and art. Since the early 1900s, artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, have spent summers painting on Wiawaka’s beautiful lakeside campus.

    Wiawaka was created by and for women in 1903. It is the oldest and longest continuously operating retreat for women in America. We are proud to honor our tradition and embrace the future as we work to maintain this historic property and fulfill the mission set forth by our founder, Mary Fuller.
    Tickets may be purchased online and Men and Women are invited to attend in Downton Abbey attire (optional).
