Remembering the Past, Building the Future: Growing the Garden

Sargent House garden "before" photo, 5/2014

Thinking green after the long winter? At Sargent House we are all excited for the greening of our stately lawn, and the stirrings of life in our many cultivated flower beds. These precious garden spaces are a welcome place to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of downtown Gloucester while picnicking or soaking in some rays.  And, this year, we have something else in store for visitors... In order to create some more "pop" and splendor on the Main Street side of the House, a brand-new donor-funded flower garden will be installed this Spring. Perennial flower beds and a retaining wall will enliven the lowest tier of our natural amphitheater, further enhancing the historic garden along Main Street. A huge thank you to our donors! The Sargent House garden will be a jewel shared with all.

Keep an eye out for the groundbreaking, and we'll be sure to post more images and news as the work gets underway!
