Hamilton House landscape comes alive in winter

While many of our museums are quiet during the winter months, our landscapes remain active. At Hamilton House in South Berwick, Maine, Piscataqua Region Garden and Landscape Manager Gary Wetzel spends hours trimming trees and bushes as part of winter landscape maintenance.

In this photo, Gary carries a bundle of lilac branches away from the river’s edge. Elsewhere on the property visitors enjoy sliding down Apple Tree Hill and snowshoeing in the fields and woods.
