Beall-Dawson Demo Garden

The Beall-Dawson House


A Montgomery County Master Gardener volunteers at the Stonestreet Museum of the 19th Century Medicine Medicinal Garden on the grounds of the historic Beall-Dawson House (circa 1915) in Rockville, MD.  This is a demonstration garden of medicinal plants typically grown and used by physicians to prepare medications during the period. The garden, which Master Gardeners helped re-design and enhance in 2010, is located steps away from the one-room office used by Dr. Edward E. Stonestreet from 1852 to 1903. The Medicinal Garden is open to the public and also serves as an outdoor education area with scheduled hours for guided tours, signs identifying the medicinal plants, and a booklet containing a layout map, historical information and descriptions of the medicinal plants and their uses.
