Colonial Garden


The Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society is restoring and reinventing 
the beautiful garden path and garden behind the historic
Sands-Willets House, the Rose Grumman Garden.
Led by Trustee Betty Mintz, a team of dedicated volunteers,
and 
Dylan Hass, owner of Sundown Tree & Lawn Care,
the foundation was laid in the Fall of 2016. 

Now that Spring 2017 is upon us, we will soon start planting.
