In 1899, Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow built The Pines, the first and only home they ever owned. Their home grew and changed along with them, but always served as the heart of this dynamic and enterprising family. Within its walls, Grace Dow raised their children and outside Herbert conducted experiments in fruit-growing and developed gardens, which continue to welcome guests today.
As a National Historic Landmark, The Pines welcomes visitors for guided tours and special events. The home, which is still filled with the Dow family’s furnishings, provides an intimate look into their life.
