Tanglewood has been the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1937. Comprising more than 400 acres of landscaped grounds, formal gardens, and rolling meadows in the towns of Lenox and Stockbridge, Tanglewood was once the country estate of Boston banker William Aspinwall Tappan. The Property, including the Main House which is still in use today, was given to the Boston Symphony Orchestra by Tappan’s daughter, Mary, and her niece Mrs. Gorham Brooks. Although Tanglewood welcomes more than 300,000 visitors each year, its beauty and tranquility remain unchanged.
