Visitors will learn how herbs, vegetables and plants were used by the Widow Thankful Arnold in the early 19th century.  The Wilhelmina Ann Arnold Barnhart Memorial Garden features over 50 varieties of herbs including those used in cooking, dyeing, fragrance and medicine.

This year’s activity for both adults and children will be making a small hedgehog or mouse from teasel plants grown in the garden. Light refreshments will also be served including our famous rhubarb tea. For further information visit or call 860-345-2400.
