Take part in a special opportunity to learn about the landscape and gardens at Hamilton House with Historic New England’s Piscataqua Region Landscape Manager Gary Wetzel. Imagine the changes in the land as wilderness yields to a busy commercial waterfront, then to farming and, finally, to formal gardens. Learn about the flowers, trees, and other plants and how the gardeners create and maintain the beautiful landscape. Tour participants are invited to visit the house at no additional charge. Landscape and garden tours are available for private groups by special arrangement. The tour will take place on Thursday, July 8 and on Saturday, August 7, from 10:30 – 11:30 am. $6 for HNE members, $12 nonmembers. Registration is required – call 207-384-2454, or log on to www.historicnewengland.org.
