The North Star Self-Guided
Legacy Landscape Tour
Now Posted Online
Our online tour will guide you through:
Part 1: Heritage Garden
Part 2: Walk About the Property
With descriptions and pictures, the tour starts in the Heritage Garden, which is a tribute to the horticultural skills of Arthur De Wint Foote, North Star Mine Superintendent and avid horiticulturalist. This portion is level, with parking available very close.
Then take a walk around the property and see some of the surviving legacy trees and shrubs on the property. Many were planted by Mr. Foote, but some pre-date him. This will be over uneven terrain.
The Tour Guide can be viewed on a computer, tablet, or on your Smart Phone (as you walk around the tour).
Note: The Heritage Garden will generally be open from 10am-12pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It will be locked most other times to keep deer and other critters from eating everything.
The Heritage Garden is closed December 1 – March 1 for winter maintenance.
