  • This 32 acre site was willed to the Town of Stratford following the deaths of David Beach and Stephen Nichols Booth.  In the 1900's these two brothers created Boothe Memorial Museum which includes a carriage house, an American Museum, miniature lighthouse and windmill, clock tower museum, a trolley station, chapel and blacksmith shop.  The original Sikorsky Bridge toll booth from the Merritt Parkway is located on the museum grounds. Enjoy beautiful flower gardens and ponds located on the property including a prize winning rose garden and working train exhibit. All the exhibits are included in the tour.  Bring your lunch, drink and your chair and mask, we will socially distance. Snack bags will be given to all members and guests attending. 

Making A Difference

The Long Hill Garden Club is comprised of numerous members with unique skills and experiences who seek to work together to educate, conserve and share to improve our homes and community.  Here are a few of the ways club members share their gifts with others. 

Garden Therapy

The Garden Therapy ELITE program works to educate students with intellectual or learning disabilities about gardening.  The Garden Therapy program at Stern Village is geared to senior citizens and offers various floral and horticulture related activities.

Conservation and Environment

The Conservation Committee seeks out projects to promote organic, native planting practices in our community as well as encouraging recycling and ecologically based programs.  Club members recently planted two certified Monarch Waystations in Trumbull. 

Random Acts of Kindness

Offering "A small bouquet to brighten your day," this altruistic project has one goal - to spread happiness and cheer!  Club members create small floral bouquets and give them to unsuspecting individuals in Trumbull and surrounding communities. 

"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow."
