During the late 19th Century, the Skinner family transformed the grounds of Wistariahurst from an empty to lot to a lush landscape of trees and lawn. A variety of trees were planted on the grounds, including maple, peach, pear, and apple. In the 1880s, wisteria vines were planted along the base of the house becoming a hallmark of the home and giving the property its name. Today, the gardens are maintained by a group of over two dozen volunteer gardeners and are open to the public from dawn to dusk.
