John Jay Homestead

In numerous Jay family photographs, the terrace appears as an active lawn and garden area for family gatherings. The terrace garden was designed in 1924 in conjunction with the addition of the west wing of the house.

The Rusticus Garden Club began to take care of the terrace garden as a community volunteer project in 1969. After the original plans were found in the Homestead archives in 1992, the club undertook the garden's restoration and continues to maintain it through volunteer efforts and fund-raising activities.
