Carr Garden Breaks Ground

After nearly eighteen months of research, planning and design, the John Bartram Association broke ground for the historic restoration of Carr Garden, as well as for renovations to the John Bartram house.

The $2.2 million project will recreate the 19th century specimen garden of Ann Bartram Carr, John Bartram’s granddaughter, and restore the roof and the north entry porch on the Bartram House, dating from 1731.

The design of Carr Garden was recreated through Ground Reconsidered’s intensive researching of historic photos, documents and texts.
