Centerbrook was responsible for the architectural design of the expansion of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden.. The Botanical Garden is the home of the Worcester Horticultural Society, the second oldest in the United States, and was founded in 1842. The association moved its headquarters to central Worcester in 1986 to develop a new botanical garden to support the mission of the association to improve the science and practice of horticulture.
The new building completes a hilltop complex in the center of a beautiful 132-acre undulating site. Existing buildings on the mountain include an early 18th-century farmhouse, the Stoddard Education and Tourism Center built in 1994, and an 18th-century orangery with a greenhouse. The Stoddard building houses classrooms, theaters, art galleries, souvenir shops, libraries, archives, offices and small cafes. Existing landscaping on site includes entrance garden, apple orchard, lawn garden, secret garden, system garden, wildlife protection pool, woodland path, cottage garden and vegetable garden.
The Owerhill Botanic Garden is one of New England’s most unique private events and is located in central Massachusetts, 45 miles from Boston and 10 miles from Worcester. This 171-acre site is located 45 miles from Boston and 10 miles from Worcester, overlooking Mount Wacasset and the Wacasset Reservoir. The Tower Hill Botanic Garden will allow guests to unwind in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, and the surrounding environment will leave a deep impression on the guests.
