A. D. White House Gardens

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens


Home to Cornell’s first president, Andrew Dickson White, the A.D. White House features stunning backyard gardens. The landscaping was originally designed by Daisy Farrand, spouse of Cornell’s fourth president, who created a two-tiered wall garden, a curved wall garden facing the house, perennial borders, a croquet lawn, and “Daisy’s Secret Garden” for mediation and intimate conversation. Although not an exact replica, today’s recreated gardens continue to offer a green oasis at the heart of campus.
