Smithville Mansion Courtyard Garden
Smithville Mansion Courtyard Gardens is located in Easthampton, New Jersey. The mansion is the main attraction here, but the formal gardens at the entrance, and the flower gardens along the pathway in the back are pretty, too.
The mansion was the home of Hezekiah Smith, the owner of a woodworking machine company. He purchased the village of Shreveville in 1865 for $20,000 and renamed it Smithville. Over the course of several years, he developed the village into a model industrial town.
The 20-room Victorian-style house is open for tours daily at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 PM. If you wish, you may enjoy tea in the dining room for an additional $20.00. Cost of admission is $7.00 per adult and $6.00 for students and seniors.
