Great Houses & Gardens of New Jersey

Author: Caroline Seebohm
Stars: 3
Review by: Mandy Apgar

An examination of historic homes in the state possessing intricate, or at least somewhat notable, gardens. A good deal are somewhat local (Somerset County) although none are in this immediate area - a few by Princeton, the inevitable Cape May area, the places one would expect elsewise but sadly none here. A history of each building is given along with brief descriptions of the efforts undertaken to keep up the grounds in their current state.
