Do you love having fresh cut flowers in your home? If so, you won’t want to miss opening Day for The Flower Cutting Garden at The Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover!
The Stevens-Coolidge Place is a property of The Trustees of Reservations in North Andover. It’s a signature example of an estate designed in “The Country Place” style. Helen Stevens of North Andover inherited the property, and after her marriage to John Gardner Coolidge the property became their summer home. Around 1914, she and John began the decades-long transformation of the farm into an elegant agricultural estate. They filled their country house with art and furniture from their trips around the world and hired an architect to remodel the Italianate style home into the Colonial Revival style that stands today. They also added the walled rose garden, greenhouse, serpentine brick wall and potager garden (or French vegetable garden) that exist today.
