When you stand at the railing and look into the Sunken Garden, imagine Jennie Butchart standing there in the early 1900s looking out into a wasteland. She wondered what she could do to turn an old limestone quarry into something nicer to look at. With determination she and following generations have built a privately owned floral show garden now visited by close to a million people each year.
Small strategically placed signs show photos of time past to help you step into the past. From January 15th to March 15th several rooms of the former home of the Butchart family display artifacts and memorabilia.
The privately owned (by family descendants) gardens were designated a National Historic Site in 2004.
