Maryland House & Garden Pilgrimage in Baltimore County, MD. Nancy Cole tells us all about her transformation of a weedy, overgrown woods to a beautiful, woodland garden setting overlooking Lake Roland. The Coles have spent over 30 years lovingly coaxing this garden into existence. At left here is a sample photo to wet your appetite.
The Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage (MHGP), a non-profit organization, is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of architecturally significant properties in the State of Maryland. Each year, the staff and volunteers of the MHGP coordinate a multi-county spring tour that gives visitors an inside look at extraordinary historic and contemporary sites and, at the same time, a fun way to support a worthy cause. The annual spring tours are a central component of the organization’s efforts to cultivate awareness of Maryland’s rich architectural and cultural heritage, from historic to contemporary settings.
