AAA Editor Notes

Glebe House is off SR 6 at 49 Hollow Rd. At this gambrel-roofed farmhouse in 1783, Samuel Seabury was elected as the first American bishop of the Episcopal Church. His position as bishop illustrated the new nation's religious tolerance and the separation of church and state prior to the drafting of the U.S. Constitution. The Gertrude Jekyll Garden, commissioned in 1926, is the last of three American gardens planned by the noted English horticultural designer. The house features period furnishings.
House and garden $7; $2 (ages 6-12). Garden $2.
Hours: Wed.-Sun. 1-4, May-Oct.; other times by appointment. Allow 1 hour minimum.
