You can help preserve one of the gems of our community’s historic past and protect its future.
Becoming a member of Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park makes a difference. Your support helps us steward the Victorian estate of Frederick and Mary Thompson, who were some of our community’s greatest benefactors. The estate today covers over 50 acres of peaceful green space and includes a 40-room mansion, 9 themed historic gardens, a 100 year-old Lord & Burnham green house complex, and a mature arboretum.
Not only do we preserve the Sonnenberg estate, we keep it open as a public garden and historic home that we share with 40,000 people each year from all corners of the globe. People come to experience history, take part in our educational and cultural events, relax in our beautiful gardens, and celebrate the special moments of their lives.
We can’t do this without the support of members like you. You make it possible for us to preserve the past and share it with the future. The future of our gardens lies in your hands. Join us as a member now.
