Dorothy Quincy Homestead - Garden Tour - August 2017

Originally built in 1686, the house is an excellent example of how architectural styles developed during the Colonial period.  Of particular note is the landscape design.  WGC member Rebecca Dinsmore provided an overview of the many herbs and plants still growing in the garden.

The second tour was the Josiah Quincy House.  Built in 1770 by COlonel Josiah Quincy and restored due to the efforts of Eliza Susan Quincy, the house and the adjoining property are maintained by Historic New England.  The Wollaston Garden Club participated in efforts to restore the original herb garden in the 1970's, now known as the Four Seasons Garden.  Our club also received a grant to restore the gravel walkway.
