garden tour

Join us for this one-of-a-kind garden tour! The tour will include a number of sites from John Frost’s book "Colonial Village" in Kittery Point.

We plan to visit the Lady Pepperrell Mansion, the Kittery First Congregational Church cemetery, the Follett house, the Hooke house, the historical demonstration gardens at Ft. McClary, the Sir William Pepperrell Mansion, the Bray House, the 1798 house (and one Moore’s Island garden), and the Kerswell Ordinary.

Tickets are available on-line and in-person at our Museum (204 Rogers Road, Kittery, ME 03904). Society members qualify for a discount. On the day of the tour, ticket holders will be given a printed brochure, including a map and describing the sites on the tour. This is a walking tour.

This tour is in celebration of Kittery’s 375th anniversary.
