Plan your garden visits and make a day of it! Stanley-Whitman shows off its colonial Dooryard Garden, one of the fifteen distinctive historic sites and gardens in Connecticut.Stop by, stroll, relax and take in the serenity and beauty of places that have charmed visitors for a century or more.

Make your own garden trail! Grab a passport at your first location and have the passport box initialed at three sites and you'll receive a special prize (you can get the passport stamped on any day - it doesn't have to be CT Historic Garden Day).

For information on each site, and to "weed" a garden blog filled with practical advice from Master Gardeners, visit cthistoricgardens.org. Connect with the gardens on Facebook at facebook.com/cthistoricgardens for garden-related tips, beautiful photos, and fun facts.

Touring the garden is FREE. The Farmington Farm Truck will be here from 11am- 1pm selling beautiful produce and local goods. Regular museum admission rates apply to house tours.
