    Conceived in 1946 by the Reverend Robert Wood Nicholson, the gardens at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church comprise a suite of lush and beautiful spaces. Among many features on the church grounds, you will find an herb garden, a cornucopia pool, the octagonal Lambert Garden, an orchard, an annual garden, memorial stones, walls containing the foundation stones of a tavern that was on the site long before the Church was built, and statuary. The parish has endeavored to keep the same feeling of an old English garden that Reverend Nicholson created, but the gardens also include plantings native to our region. One of the most spectacular seasons for St. Mary’s gardens is spring, when daffodils bloom all over the grounds! Open for Tours: July 15 & July 16.
