Upon the museum's creation in 1926, English author and landscape designer Gertrude Jekyll started a traditional garden -- and in the 1970s, her plans were completed. Now, visitors marvel at the wholeness of this garden as they stroll through border plantings and a rose allee. See full description of Glebe House and Gertrude Jekyll Garden
