Walled Garden & Pond Hollister House Garden

Regular Visiting Hours: Every Saturday from May through September

It is our experience that gardens can best be appreciated and enjoyed when the sun is not too bright and temperatures are more moderate. Therefore, during the cooler months of May and September, our visiting hours are slightly different from the long summer days of June, July and August.


10 am – 12 noon and 2 – 5 pm

June through August

8 am – 10 am and 3 pm – 6 pm

September – September 28

10 am – 12 noon and 2 – 5 pm

We request a donation of $5 per person. These funds are used to expand our outreach and education efforts.

Group visits are welcome by appointment. We will be happy to make special arrangements to accommodate your interests. Arrangements can be made for your group to picnic in the garden at the conclusion of your tour. Please contact us by email: office@hollisterhousegarden.org or telephone 860-868-2200.
