‘See Rosicrucian Park without leaving Manhattan’

I believe I will skip New York Pipe Clubs meeting next Tuesday to visit the Rosicrucian Cultural Center instead, where the Grand Master will present a virtual tour of Rosicrucian Park in San Jose, California.

“Rosicrucian Park is situated in an area that was once mostly orchards and farmland. Conceived in 1927 by H. Spencer Lewis, the Park now covers nearly an entire city block. Rosicrucian Park attracts thousands of visitors each year from all over the world. The Park offers a mysterious and beautiful combination of Egyptian and Moorish architecture set among broad lawns, rose gardens, statuary, and sparkling fountains. The peaceful environment, along with the spiritual essence of what Rosicrucian Park represents, creates a serene and harmonious ambiance sensed by its many visitors.” Read more here.
