WELCOME TO THE HIGHLANDS MANSION
The Highlands Mansion and Gardens is a 44-acre historic site with a late 18th century Georgian mansion and two-acre formal garden.
Surrounded by massive stone walls, the gardens offer a beautiful example of early 20th, century estate gardening with an unusual blend of horticulture and architecture.
The site features nine outbuildings, including a bank barn, springhouse, greenhouse, smokehouse and Gothic Revival gardener's cottage.
The Highlands Historical Society began to restore the 2-acre formal
garden to its appearance c.1925 - 1935 in October 2001, with a
project at the screening wall on the east side of the garden.
