The estate’s former carriage house has been renamed to honor the late Walter Hunnewell, former president of MHS and a lasting patron of horticulture throughout his life. Now completely renovated and accessible to people with disabilities, the building’s original vaulted and trussed ceiling is exposed, capping a great event hall of nearly 3,000 square feet.
