Visitors learn about Codman Estate gardens

Ellen Mackey, a gardener at Historic New England, led a tour through the Codman Estate landscape on May 7 to highlight recent restoration projects funded by the Preservation Maintenance Fund. The Codman landscape has undergone significant restoration after research, planning, and a few enormous volunteer projects. The walking tour through the Codman Estate landscape and gardens discussed individual restoration projects as well as garden planting specifics. The twenty-three visitors followed the garden walk with an interior tour of the Codman house.

The Codman Estate landscape and gardens are open daily from dawn to dusk and the house opens for tours after June 1.
