Chesapeake Arboretum is a 48-acre "natural classroom" dedicated to promoting horticulture and environmental awareness through displays, education and research. The Arboretum was dedicated in November 1996 and boasts one of Virginia's finest trail systems, meandering through a mature hardwood forest with many varieties of native plants and trees. The Arboretum headquarters is an eighteenth century farmhouse with trails and theme gardens that include a fragrant and antique rose garden. The farmhouse itself was built in 1730 with an addition built in 1822. The Arboretum is available to all persons or groups seeking information regarding urban forestry and/or wishing to enjoy the peaceful, healthy refuge offered by meandering pathways through natural and planned settings.
