About the Gardens
The esteemed Olmsted Brothers Landscape firm designed the Dunn Gardens in 1915. One hundred years later the vision of the Gardens as a place of timeless grace has been realized. Notable features include naturalistic groupings of trees, broad lawns with borders of shrubs, and woodland walks. Plants range from diminutive erythroniums to large rhododendrons and towering Douglas firs.
The E.B. Dunn Historic Garden Trust is dedicated to conserving historically and horticulturally significant gardens in the Northwest. Specific purposes of the Garden Trust include: Conservation of the Dunn Gardens for use and enjoyment of the public; conservation of other historically significant gardens in the Northwest; and public education about the history, horticulture, restoration and preservation of gardens in the Northwest.
