Tour this 18th century farmhouse, known as birthplace of the Episcopal Church in the New World, and graced by the only extant American garden planned by England's most venerated designer.

The Glebe House is located on one of the oldest streets in Woodbury. It is interpreted that the period in Woodbury is from 1771-1786 when the Marshall family and their slaves lived in the house. Costumed docents tell the story of the daily life of this family during the Revolutionary War. The period furnishings include many regional pieces of furniture. The garden surrounding the house was designed by renowned garden designer, Gertrude Jekyll and is the only United States garden remaining that she designed. The gift shop offers garden books, children's reproduction Colonial toys, locally made wooden ware and pottery, garden and history related gifts. Plants from the garden are also available during growing season. Holiday gifts ideas are available for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
