Marsh-Whitlock Farm (Warren, Connecticut)
The gardens on this 80-acre property were created and are maintained by the current owners. Established in 1976, the gardens include an enclosed (circle in a square) dooryard garden; a fenced "Grandmother's Garden," centered on a sundial; a potager; and a woodland garden with a collection of species primula raised from seed. Other landscape features include ponds, barns, meadows, and fruit trees. The gardens complement the house, a saltbox built in 1738.
Persons associated with the garden include: Samuel Whitlock and descendants (former owners, ca. 1750); Ebenezer Marsh (former owner, ca. 1758); Zebulon Gritman and descendants (former owners, ca. 1833); Gary Weisman (sculptor, 1997-1998); and Nathaniel Hill (artist, 1998).
