No matter the season, there is always something beautiful to experience at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morristown. We love wandering the property in the Spring, watching the grounds come to life after a long Winter. Windy trails and lots of floral and fauna are scattered around every corner of the property.
Originally built in 1895 as a summer home for George G. and Sara (Ballantine) Frelinghuysen, the house on the property is now home to many events and fundraising activities. When their daughter Matilda, the only heir to the estate, died, she bequeathed the property to Morris County to carry out her plans to turn it into a public arboretum.
Admission is free year round. You can enjoy a stroll along the paved path to visit all of the many gardens, wooded areas, and flowering trees and gain a bit of the serenity of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
Visit the Frelinghuysen Arboretum web site at www.arboretumfriends.org for news on the property, to reserve the arboretum for a wedding or event, or to sign up for a program.
