The Arnold Arboretum did not come into existence full-formed, but had a long adolescence before it (literally) blossomed at 50. Our first director, Charles Sargent, prepared a 50-year report in 1922, before the end of his own 54-year tenure. But, what about the first 25 years? We don't have a 25-year report, however, we do have photos and the engaging stories from that time.
Join our docent to hear those stories, as she takes you on a timeline through the walnut and oak collections, to the beeches, and back via Bussey Hill. This tour meets at the Centre Street Gate.
