    Mt. Ida’s magnificently sited campus is the former 230-acre estate bought for Robert Gould Shaw II by his prominent, wealthy parents. Today the baronial Shaw Hall, grandiose polo pony barn, and other structures still suggest what life must have been like for the “Social Set.” Come take a look and hear Shaw family stories about Lady Astor, copper mining fortunes, and Italian immigrant Crescenzo Angino of Newton Community Farm.
    Meet in Mt. Ida’s parking lot on Carlson Avenue. Enter the campus by turning off Dedham Street near Brookline Avenue, going past residential housing on Carleston Avenue & up to the college gate. Park in first lot on the left, halfway up the hill.
