Garden Talk

April 27 @ 2:00 pm

The Trent House Association will host a talk on public gardens in New Jersey on Saturday, April 27, 2024, at 2 pm. This free program will be held in-person at the Trent House Visitor Center, 15 Market Street, Trenton, NJ (across from the Hughes Justice Complex) and via zoom at https://tinyurl.com/THTalkApril27.

Michael Gross, member of the Garden State Gardens Consortium, will give an illustrated talk on the Consortium with a focus on New Jersey gardens with colonial through Gilded Age landscape designs. Accompanying Dr. Gross’ talk will be illustrations of landscape designs at the Trent House from the early 1700s to 1929 as well as those developed for the grounds once the Museum was established.

The Garden State Gardens Consortium seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of the beauty and horticultural, educational, artistic and historic value of New Jersey’s public gardens. Dr. Gross is Professor of Biology and Director of the Sister Mary Grace Burns Arboretum at Georgian Court University. The Arboretum is a member of the Consortium as is the William Trent House Museum garden and grounds.

The William Trent House Museum is a National Historic Landmark in the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area and on the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail. The Museum is dedicated to sharing the authentic history of the house, property, and people with our communities, connecting the past with today and tomorrow. Owned by the City of Trenton, it is operated by the Trent House Association, which is supported by the generosity of its donors; by grants from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, the New Jersey Cultural Trust, the New Jersey Historic Trust, the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission with funding from the New Jersey Historical Commission, and the Bunbury Fund and the New Jersey Arts & Culture Renewal Fund of the Princeton Area Community Foundation; and by contributions from NJM Insurance Group and Orion General Contractors.
