Have You Noticed Our New Historic Site Sign?

The Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum has had many visitors stop by after noticing our new sign at our entry, but hopefully, many of you have also noticed the stunning new sign installed by Milton 350th Anniversary Committee, acknowledging the property's historic significance and recent designation as a Historic District on the National Registry of Historic Places.
The National Register nomination form for the district was approved by the Massachusetts Historical Commission for "its association with the growth and development of the town of Milton and the broader Boston basin, tracking changes in agricultural practice and in settlement form as the region’s density and character changed over three centuries." The NR nomination acknowledged that the "landscape includes buildings, structures, fields, and gardens that are well-preserved examples of key types that have been identified as emblematic of the periods of their construction and use," adding that "these resources reflect the unfolding of the family’s relationship with the land and the community, as the site shifted from farm to country place to suburb, supporting its historic significance.".
