Gate House Museum

The Gate House is the Garden’s first building. Built in 1938, the Gate House was originally the grounds keeper’s residence. The oolite and wood, two-story structure sits on the Garden’s main axis, subtly accentuating the neighboring Overlook and Allée. This iconic building has set the architectural aesthetic for the Garden’s buildings. Can you see the resemblance in the Shehan Visitor Center, DiMare Science Village, The Glasshouse Cafe and the Rose-McQuillan Arts Building.
