What’s New at the Homestead!



Please stop by the Homestead and check out our beautiful gardens. Our Colonial Herb Garden has close to one hundred different varieties of herbs and flowering plants and the Colonial Revival Garden is planted with many different varieties of perennial and annual flowering plants and bushes. A special thanks to the Mystic Garden Club for their grant in the amount of $1000 to purchase plants!!!



The Denison Homestead is collecting recipes to include in our Denison Cookbook which will be published and available for sale later this year. We are interested in recipes that have been in families for generations as well as current recipes. The cookbook will also feature historic photos and stories from the Homestead.

To submit a recipe:

  • Include the contributor’s name & location.

  • Please type recipe. Include the name of the recipe, ingredients & cooking instructions.

  • Please do not submit more than three recipes.

  • Please share anything interesting about the recipe or the original creator or the recipe.

Recipes must be received by October 15, 2019.

We will try to use all recipes submitted in the cookbook. However, if we receive more than allowed, we will need to eliminate some. We will do our best to make sure to include at least one recipe from each contributor.
