South Haven

This is the birthplace of Liberty Hyde Bailey, America’s Father of Modern Horticulture and founder of the New Agrarian philosophy. The Liberty Hyde Bailey homestead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places due to its influence on the life and philosophical outlook of Liberty Hyde Bailey, Jr. Bailey grew up in this home and the surrounding farm, observing nature and enjoying a simple life, memories of which he would often invoke in his most influential philosophical writings. In addition to being a lovely museum we will tour, a Bailey Museum representative will guide us through the gardens as will.
