“Morrill’s Landscape Design: Bringing An Historic Garden Back To Life” – Garden Talk with Margie Carpenter, Landscape Historian & Master Gardener

Justin Smith Morrill was a serious student of landscape design and an avid horticulturist.  His designs and plantings for the walkways and grounds around his home are in the best tradition of the mid-nineteenth century Romantic Landscape Movement in America. Morrill’s landscape plans draw from Victorian tastemaker and horticulturist Andrew Jackson Downing. His gardens were filled with new plants just being introduced to this country from Europe, Asia, and South America.  Come learn more about our famous Senator’s landscape design and horticultural interests.

Fee: $5. Please pre-register.
