Old Mill Hill Society Events
Garden Tour 2021
For 30 years residents of Trenton’s Mill Hill Neighborhood have been opening their gardens to visitors, garden enthusiasts, and architecture buffs. The 2021 tour will take place from noon-5 p.m. on Saturday, June 12, 2021. About 15 gardens and public spaces in the neighborhood will open their garden gates and invite people to come look behind the house facades and see the unique gardens and private outdoor spaces of the neighborhood.
This year’s tour will operate in accordance with CDC guidance and State of NJ regulations regarding Covid-19. Tickets will be timed to limit capacity and better facilitate social distancing. Advanced tickets are available for the top of every hour. Visitors without advanced tickets will only be accommodated on the half hour. Children under 12 are free. Masks are required at check-in, while visiting gardens, and whenever physical distancing is not possible.
The tour begins at Artworks located at 19 Everett Alley and South Stockton Street, Trenton.
The tour is run and organized by the Old Mill Hill Society and the residents of Mill Hill. It has played an important role in the historic restoration of the neighborhood. Money raised by the tour funds preservation grants that assist homeowners in maintaining the Trenton Landmarks Commission for Historic Preservation Standards that have helped make the neighborhood what it is today.
The OMHS acknowledges the support of the City of Trenton, Department of Recreation, Natural Resources and Culture, Division of Culture.
Free parking is available in the Artworks lot at the beginning of the tour.
Artworks is located at 19 Everett Alley Trenton, NJ 08611
