Leonard J. Buck Garden

Before Leonard J. Buck sold his 33-acre estate to Somerset County in 1976, he collaborated with well-known landscape-architect Zenon Schreiber to develop a naturalistic garden on his property. Their goal was to create an ecologically sustainable garden that would not be easily recognized as man-made.


As a result of their vision, the garden was cultivated and set among outlying rock formations within a wooded-stream valley. Visitors can now enjoy the gardens that contain exotic species of flora, which have been adapting and thriving in microclimates throughout the years.
