Description

Created at the turn of the twentieth century by Francis L. V. Hoppin (1867–1941), of the architectural firm Hoppin & Koen, for Captain Andrew C. Zabriskie (1853–1916) and his wife, Frances Hunter Zabriskie. After Frances died Blithewood was donated to Bard College. Years of weather has taken a toll on the garden's infrastructure, which is now in urgent need of repair. In November 2016, the Friends of the Landscape and Arboretum Program at Bard joined forces with the Garden Conservancy to develop an action plan for restoring Blithewood Garden.
