In 1936 Bernard McLaughlin began planting what would become one of Maine's most beloved gardens. A century-old Maine farmstead with massive stonewalls and huge barn provided a unique background for his sophisticated collection of trees, woody shrubs, and perennials. There is a wonderful garden gift shop and many programs and events.
Lunch at Nomad Café on Historic Main Street in Downtown Norway, a must! There's free wi-fi too.
