SHERBURNE KITCHEN GARDEN c. 1695-1728
The Sherburne Garden is a raised-bed kitchen garden on its original site, typical of the era of the adjacent, restored c. 1695-1728 Sherburne House. The garden provided a convenient source of produce, medicine and culinary herbs outside the kitchen door. The recreation of this garden and the selection of its heirloom plants are based on probate inventories and documents. Archaeological evidence for the plantings includes soil, seed and pollen analysis from the garden.
The orchard includes Roxbury Russet apples, the oldest named apple variety in North America.
