Long Hill and Sedgwick Gardens

572 Essex Street, Beverly, MA 01915



In 1916, this 114-acre hillside property attractedåÊAtlantic MonthlyåÊeditor and publisher Ellery Sedgwick and his wife for its lovely views of the rural North Shore. But Mabel Cabot Sedgwick, an accomplished gardener and horticulturist, had more ambitious ‰ÛÒ and aesthetic ‰ÛÒ ideas.

As the couple formulated plans for the elegant Federal-style home that would become their summer retreat, Mabel Sedgwick also set about designing gardens and landscape amenities that are renowned a century later.
