Or guest may stroll through formal gardens, picnic on lush lawns, explore trails where the Blacks' horses once cantered, browse the museum store or investigate the carriage and sleigh collections. Woodlawn is a property of the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations, the group that helped form nearby Acadia National Park.
