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.

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 trails are open for cross-country skiing. 

The garden is closed for the season.
