The 27-acre property features a "very old" wisteria arbor next to an in-ground steel swimming pool; an allee of Bradford pears; and a man-made pond, which previously served as the swimming pool. The garden also includes an English-type rose garden and a Dutch-influenced perennial/vegetable garden. According to the owner's son, Mr. John Minturn was responsible for all the major landscaping of Hillside Farm: gardens, ponds, woods, and the rhododendron collection brought from North Carolina.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Mr. John Minturn (former owner, 1920s); Gus Rausch (superintendent/horticulturist, 1920s-1930s); Robert Bellois (superintendent/horticulturist, 1959-1979); Allen Bellois (superintendent/horticulturist, 1979-2003); and Amand Bellois (superintendent/horticulturist, 2003-present).
