Fodor's Review

This property consists of the large, antiques-filled, gambrel-roof Colonial home of Dr. Samuel Seabury, who, in 1783, was elected the first Episcopal bishop in the United States, and its historic garden. The latter was designed in the 1920s by renowned British horticulturist Gertrude Jekyll. Though small, it is a classic, old-fashioned English-style garden and the only one of the three Jekyll designed in the United States still in existence.
