|The restoration of the Ann Bartram Carr Garden is significant because it is the first major garden restoration project at Bartram’s Garden in nearly a century. The restoration enhances the garden’s historical accuracy and beauty, reinterpreting it as it was during the period when Ann Bartram Carr (1779-1858) was in residence. Carr was an accomplished horticulturist and plant entrepreneur, and one of the first women to run a gardening business in our young nation.
