Trenton’s Historic Mill Hill Neighborhood Kicks Off Summer With Their 32nd Annual Garden Tour
June 10 • 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20.00
Trenton’s Old Mill Hill Society is excited to host its 32nd annual urban Garden Tour on June 10, 2023 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets are just $20 and can be purchased in advance through www.TrentonMillHill.org or on the day-of at Artworks Trenton located at 19 Everett Alley across from Trenton’s DMV office.
For 32 years, this eclectic walking tour has offered an incredible celebration of early Summer, and a chance to take in dozens of highly curated, urban gardens behind the historic, brick facades of the neighborhood. Many homeowners are also known to host live artists, music, specialty drinks and more.
The Garden Tour is an annual Mill Hill fundraising event, alongside the wildly popular Holiday House Tour, which was established nearly 60 years ago and has since become one of the most attended Holiday Historic home tours in the region. With the variety of home architectural styles, sizes and ages, Mill Hill’s nineteenth century streetscape is one of the most interesting between New York City and Philadelphia. Approximately 300 people from the region are expected to attend the annual tour.
“The Garden Tour is one of Trenton’s most longstanding, celebrated summer events and offers everyone… including neighbors, families, friends and attendees to browse dozens of incredibly landscaped urban gardens (and public spaces) situated behind one of the most beautifully historic neighborhoods in Central New Jersey” said Meaghan Singletary, co-chair of the 2023 Garden Tour and co-owner of the of Out of Step Offbeat Boutique & General Store located at the Trenton Farmers Market, “Not only are my fiancé Joseph and I co-charing the Garden Tour Committee this year together but it’s our first year living in the neighborhood and we’re incredibly excited to be involved and open our own garden for everyone to see!”
The tour is organized by the Old Mill Hill Society and the residents of Mill Hill and has played an important role in the restoration of the neighborhood. Money raised by the tour funds historic preservation grants that assist Mill Hill home and business owners in maintaining the landmark standards that have helped make the neighborhood what it is today.
“I’m truly looking forward to this year’s OMHS Garden Tour,” said Old Mill Hill Society President Oriol R. Gutierrez Jr. “As visitors walk around Mill Hill viewing our stunning private gardens and historic houses, I hope they also enjoy this year’s additions of live music and art throughout the neighborhood. It’s a wonderful chance for visitors and locals to connect with each other.”
Mill Hill Society’s 2023 Garden Tour is Saturday, June 10th, 20223 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.TrentonMillHill.org or on the day-of at Artworks Trenton. Artworks Trenton is located at 19 Everett Alley, Trenton, NJ 08611.
