Wilderness Garden

Notable architecture historian Henry Hope Reed once said about Wethersfield’s gardens that its “inspiration is grand, the tradition noble, and the vision all-seeing.” These words describe the grandeur of Wethersfield’s grounds, which include a 3-acre Formal Garden as well as a 7-acre Wilderness Garden.

The Wilderness Garden is a wooded area looped by a carriage drive, with gorgeous statues, rhododendron, and mountain laurel. Hawks sitting on pillars frame a shallow pool with a vertical spout, marking the entrance to the wilderness.

The Wethersfield Institute provides  cultural, spiritual, and intellectual programs through the generosity and support of people like you.

Wethersfield is privately maintained by the Wethersfield Foundation, and relies on your generosity and support to conserve the estate and make its gardens and grounds available for public use.

With a focus on restoration, Friends of Wethersfield funds conservation projects that maintain the estate, gardens, and grounds in accordance with their original aesthetic splendor.

The garden and trails are closed for the season.
