John Jay Homestead

The design of the herb garden located here among the ruins of the old glasshouse yard is based on typical 18th- and 19th-century American and English gardens. Please enter and explore. An herb garden brochure is available in a box by the potting shed door.

Two glasshouse foundations form the north and east borders of the garden plan. From their construction early in the 19th century, these heated glasshouses were used year-round to grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers from seeds, cuttings, and bulbs.
Over the years other garden structures were added, including a grapery, a forcing house, cold frames, and hotbeds.
