Just an hour east in Genesee Depot is Ten Chimneys. This estate, lovingly created by theatre legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, is open to the public as a world-class house museum and national resource for theatre, arts, and arts education. The Lunts designed Ten Chimneys the same way they crafted each performance — one delightful detail layered upon another, creating a home that’s as personal as a diary. Ten Chimneys is a must see in our own backyard. And yes, it really does have ten chimneys.
