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.
