Stanley M. Rowe Arboretum
The arboretum was founded in 1926 by Stanley M. Rowe, Sr. and his wife Dorothy Snowden Rowe. Their first trees were Northern Red Oaks, European Larch, Eastern White Pine, and Scots Pine. The Rowe property eventually expanded to 68 ha (170 acres) containing some 1,800 different species of trees and shrubs, with a focus on conifers. As most of the finest trees were in one area, it was given to the village as a parkland.
The American Horticultural Society, honoring Rowe in 1982 with an amateur citation for the arboretum, commended its "remarkable collection of conifers, crabapples, magnolias, oaks and beeches". It has been designated as a Conifer Reference Garden by the American Conifer Society.
