History[edit]

Edna Y. Schwartz created a performing arts summer program for women at Belvoir Terrace in 1954. (Her daughter and granddaughter are the current directors/owners.)

Belvoir Terrace was built by Rotch & Tilden between 1888 and 1890 for Morris K. Jesup. Its landscape was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. In the early 1920s, John Shepherd[disambiguation needed] purchased and renovated the property as a summer retreat.
