The Herb Garden, located near the entrance of the Neild Museum, is a horticulture project begun in 1980. Creation of the garden included grading the site, moving the old stronghouse to its present location, and laying intersecting brick pathways. The sundial was a gift to the Historical Society from the Dorchester Garden Club, which is responsible for the care of the garden.
This is a colonial type garden intended to demonstrate the many uses of herbs, both practical and aesthetic, and to instruct the public in the pleasures of growing, even in a small space, something fresh, fragrant, and flavorful.
