Open Garden Days: Alice's Garden at the H.H. Biddle House
Wednesday, December 12, 2018
7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
This event repeats every day between 7/30/2018 and 12/31/2018.
The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.
The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.
Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)
The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.
