Notes:
A few evergreen trees are all that presently remain of the Homewood garden, which dated back to the 1920's. The original 223 acres of the property were purchased by Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. in 1946. A pool was added to the propery in the 1950's, with shrubs and flower beds at its edges. A split rail fence and a garden gate defined the front of the garden which featured and arbor, and roses, boxwood, peonies, and spring bulbs. Beyond the garden, a children's play area was situated next to a small orchard. In it's prime, the property was a working dairy farm and also had conformation show horses; the large stable no longer exists but the dairy barn remains standing. In 2000 the Pettibone family sold the property and the unattended home subsequently burned down in 2010.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Aldrich Dudley (former owners, 1930's-1946?); the Wyatt family (1930s-1946?), Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. (former owners, 1946-ca. 1989?); Mr. John Pettibone Jr. (former owner, 1989-2000); and Mr. Bill Budd (grounds keeper, 1946-).
