The 89 year-old garden, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, will be at its peak in June with old heirloom roses blooming, fragrant herbs and many interesting plants dating from Elizabethan times.

The Plainfield Garden Club, founded in 1915, is the second oldest "social" club still in existence in the Queen City. Our members have owned and cultivated over 300 beautiful homes and gardens in the city. Enjoy a day in the historic Shakespeare Garden and learn about the horticultural heritage of the area & help preserve a special part of Plainfield.
