What is Cornerstone Gardens and Arboretum?
Cornerstone Gardens and Arboretum was created as a place of meditation, rest and reflection for Carriage House Repose & Restore, Inc., a Christian support ministry for ministers, missionaries and evangelists. The Carriage House is situated on the property close to the gardens, and the pastors and others come to stay there as a short-term respite. The caretakers and stewards of the Carriage House ministry have opened the gardens to the general public so as to share the natural beauty and wonder of over 5,000 plants and trees comprised of over 150 different species.
Why “Cornerstone” Gardens?
The Garden derives its name from Jesus Christ, referenced by The God of Israel in Isaiah 28:16. Dr. Charles Ryrie says: “Jesus Christ is a foundation stone in His atonement, a tested stone in His temptations, and a costly (precious) cornerstone in His relationship to His people.”
The Gardens offer interesting and appealing natural beauty at all seasons. Come visit and take time to learn more about the plant collections while enjoying one of the area’s finest private gardens.
