Natives in the Garden
The native shrubs and trees in this area were planted in the 1930s by the Goodell sisters. Their design included Pennsylvania’s state tree, the Hemlock, and state flower, Mt. Laurel. Wildflowers include Bloodroot, White Trillium, Wild Ginger, Virginia Bluebells, and other spring ephemerals. Around the cabin you will also find other native trees: Sugar Maple, American Hornbeam, and Redbud.
Allegheny Chinquapin, a native nut tree, provided the sisters with nuts for roasting.
