Historic Beatrix Farrand Garden at Bellafield

Welcome To The Beatrix Farrand Garden at Bellefield in Hyde Park, NY, the earliest existing private garden created by one of America's most celebrated landscape designers.

Not only is the landscape at Bellefield historically significant, it is a testament to the efforts of a dedicated group of modern gardeners and the stewardship of the National Park Service at the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt National Historic Site. Acquired by the Federal government in 1976, Bellefield is an elegant 18th century house remodeled by famed architects McKim, Mead and White for Thomas and Sarah Newbold. It now serves as the regional headquarters for the National Park Service, which manages three sites in Hyde Park: the adjacent Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt’s Val-Kill, and the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site.
