Freeman Gardens Association

A State and National Historic Site; Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens
P.O. Box 8113, Glen Ridge, NJ 07028
Larry Stauffer, President

Organized in 1968, this non-profit Association maintains and continually restores the beautiful formal gardens deeded to the Borough by heirs of the late Clayton E. and Winifred Brownell Freeman, longtime residents and benefactors of Glen Ridge. In keeping with established tradition, this organization makes it possible for Borough residents to enjoy a splendid facility at minimum cost to the taxpayers by raising necessary funds through private donations. An outstanding feature of the Gardens is the Memorial Rose Garden, which is being replanted by donations of specific plants given by individuals in memory of deceased relations and friends. Those roses are arranged in accordance with a plan closely following the original plan for the Garden.

The Gardens have been the site of such community programs as High School band concerts, readings from Shakespeare, Scout meetings and other gatherings, many sponsored by the Borough Cultural Committee. Freeman Gardens is recognized by agricultural and conservation experts as a sanctuary for many species of birds, trees and wild flowers. It also serves the local schools as an informal, outdoor laboratory. Membership and volunteer opportunities are open to all, and the Gardens are available by reservation for birthdays and other special events.
