The Calvin Jones House Gardens

The gardens surrounding the south side of the Calvin Jones House are beautiful every season of the year, but never more so than late spring when the colorful hues of blooming salvia, daisies, phlox, and catmint blend to create the perfect perennial border for a traditional country home.

Daylilies add a splash of yellow to the cooler perennials lining the brick walk leading to the front steps of the Calvin Jones House and across the north side of the lawn.

It’s all the work of Hugh Nourse, a Master Gardener and volunteer groundskeeper, who has diligently preserved the beauty and integrity of the historic property’s natural landscape.
