Meadowburn was once the country place of Helena Rutherfurd Ely (1858-1920), a pioneering figure in American horticulture at the turn of the 20th century and founding member of the Garden Club of America. Through trial and error she developed the practical hands-on horticultural knowledge that informed and inspired her three widely influential books on hardy gardening. In her day, Helena Rutherfurd Ely was considered one of the premier garden experts in America and her gardens at Meadowburn were recognized as among the finest in the country. More than 130 years have passed since Ely started her gardens at Meadowburn, and today her gardens are in the process of being rehabilitated and brought back to life.
