The historic gardens of Connecticut Landmarks’ properties are museums themselves. They showcase spectacular landscape design and lush flowers, and offer a window into the ways residents of our historic houses used the properties. Three of our sites are members of Connecticut’s Historic Gardens, which cultivates a passion for the diversity of historic gardens at distinctive historic homes in Connecticut. Connecticut’s Historic Gardens brings greater recognition and visitation to member sites, offering visitor experiences rich in beauty and history, and fostering learning.
Since 2004, Connecticut’s Historic Gardens has organized Historic Gardens Day, the last Sunday in June. On Historic Gardens Day, sixteen historic gardens around the state welcome you to explore a variety of beautiful garden styles from different periods. Enjoy free admission to visit the gardens of three participating Connecticut Landmarks sites! Stay tuned to our events calendar for more information as we prepare for 2024’s event.
