Chase Lloyd House Garden

The Chase–Lloyd House, built in 1769-1774, is one of the first brick three-story Georgian mansions to be built in the Thirteen Colonies, and is one of the finest examples of the style. Its interiors were designed by William Buckland.

Visitors will be educated about how native plants and vegetables blend in with an established landscape creating biodiversity and supporting sustainable horticultural practices, such as conserving water, composting and creating habitats for wildlie. In showcasing our Bay-Wise certified garden (since 2014), visitors will see and study these practices in order to use them in their own landscapes.

The Chase–Lloyd House House hosts over 1,000 visitors a year to tour the 250 year-old home and garden.
