Details: In 1936 Bernard McLaughlin began planting what would become one of Maine's most beloved gardens. Bernard welcomed visitors to the garden whenever the gate was open, creating a true mecca for garden enthusiasts. With no formal horticultural training, tending the garden single-handedly for most his life, he eventually became known as the "Dean of Maine Gardeners." McLaughlin died at age 98 in 1995. Now over seventy years old, the landmark two acre garden is under the stewardship of a nonprofit organization formed to preserve the historic home, barn and garden for the public.McLaughlin Gardens
