The historic Buttrick Gardens invite visitors to explore a variety of outdoor rooms. Beginning in 1911, the formal gardens were tended and enlarged by two generations of the Buttrick family until 1962 when the National Park Service purchased the property. Stewards of the land since the colonial period, the Buttrick family were proud that their gardens stood near the historic muster fields of April 19, 1775.
The eclectic gardens feature viewing terraces, steps that lead down to the Concord River, elegant wrought ironwork, and walkways of brick, bluestone, and cobblestone. Framed by ornamental trees and shrubs, garden beds contain the Buttrick family’s award-winning iris and daylilies, colorful spring bulbs, and perennials that bloom from spring to fall.
