PRIVATE EVENTS

A Perfect Backdrop

The Garden’s historic Farmhouse and beautifully landscaped gardens provide a memorable setting for wedding ceremonies, corporate or social gatherings, educational field trips, and garden tours.

A timeless setting, the historic Adams Farmhouse was built in the 1890’s. It has been modernized with a catering kitchen and three restrooms but maintains its old-fashioned feel with its southern farmhouse exterior, Victorian style décor, elevated ceilings, hardwood floors and a wrap-around porch. Just outside the back door is the lovely brick courtyard, which provides a smooth transition from indoors to the outside. It boasts a romantic light canopy overhead and is a beautiful area for ceremonies, receptions, dinner parties, and more.
