Tours now fully open!

Tours are one of our favorite ways to connect with visitors coming to the garden and we're excited to be offering them again! We prefer a max tour group size of 10 people, as the trails in the garden are fairly narrow and it's difficult to talk to larger groups. We're always happy to customize tours to focus on what you're interested in. We can break larger groups into two smaller groups and/or give more information on the Oval lawn before giving a general walk though of the garden.

Our typical tour lasts about an hour and covers:

  • The family history and history of the garden
  • The Public Garden
  • The Private Garden
  • A tour of the house

To book a tour or if you have questions, please email us.

We are now asking for a suggested donation of $15 per person for tours, and offer an option copy of our book for an additional $20.


  • Trails are narrow and are best for the sure-footed
  • Walking shoes recommended
