Stonehedge was founded in 1966 by Russell Keich and Don Herring with the purchase of an old Pennsylvania farm house and property three miles south of Tamaqua. Their dream was to create beauty and share it with others.
From their first day on the property, Russell and Don began the process of transforming the farm fields with the help of committed friends and volunteers into the beautiful gardens visitors see today. Each tree and flower was planted... each boulder placed... each pond dug... a titanic effort spanning 50 years as a labor of love and a gift to share with the community.
Some access may be limited during private events – check our website or call in advance to be sure.
The gardens at Stonehedge are a certified as a Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
