RYE, N.Y. -- The Jay Heritage Center has opened a new exhibit, "Mary Rutherfurd Jay - Garden Architect," which will continue through Sept. 27.

Mary Rutherfurd Jay (1872-1953) was a descendant of American Founding Father John Jay. She also was one of America's earliest landscape architects and a vocal advocate of horticultural education and careers for women.

The new exhibit will illuminate her career and volunteer service during World War I. See photos of her garden commissions that have been digitized for the very first time, from hand-colored glass lantern slides of the early 1900s.

The free exhibit will be at the Jay Estate, 210 Boston Post Road, Rye. The exhibit will be available for viewing from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and 2-5 p.m. Sundays.
