A garden displaying some of the more commonly used herbs of the late 18th and 19th centuries is maintained at the house by the Spring Glen Garden Club. It contains many examples of culinary and folk medicine herbs and herbs used by Connecticut physicians as documented in the 1811-1830 diaries of Dr. William Beaumont of Lebanon. All plants are labeled and an information sheet is available from the house docents.
