Average Reviews

Description

The first priest of Bethlehem, Reverend Joseph Bellamy, lived in this house. It was a holiday home in 1912, and the garden was projected in 1915. The owner’s wife (Ferriday) projected the garden so that it looked like an Aubusson carpet. It has a geometric shape with a drawer hedge and filled planting.

History

The property of the Connecticut sights, the house and garden of Bellamy-Ferriday was in the 18th century the house of St. Joseph Bellamy, the outstanding colony minister. Turned into a summer home by the early 20th century Ferride family of New York City, this property includes American antiquities, historic granaries and farm buildings, and an archive building with Civil War writings. The landscape features an official garden from around 1915, collections of peonies, lilacs, and roses, as well as extraordinary plant samples. There is also a souvenir store and a regular sale of plants, many of which were distributed in the garden of 1915.
