The Garden


The Hyland House garden is an early-eighteenth-century period garden.

All the plants in the garden are either native to Connecticut or were known to have been cultivated in domestic New England gardens in 1713 when the house was built.

The front parlor garden and the rear kitchen garden would typically have been surrounded by protective fences. Plants with culinary, medicinal, and ornamental uses were mixed together in raised beds.
