New Hampshire's historic gardens include The Fells and home of St. GaudensBring your group to explore New Hampshire’s gardens grown in every shape and size in public spaces, at historic home and sites, and at living history museums. A nationally recognized rhododendron grove and wildflower trail blooms with flowers and song bird calls throughout the warm season. American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’s property includes lovely gardens and walking trails. Historic but still very active gardens are worked all season by volunteers and learners at a still thriving Shaker community.
