Welcome to the Glebe House...


Come experience The Glebe House Museum and Gertrude Jekyll Garden -- 


Set in the picturesque Litchfield Hills in historic Woodbury's village center, the Glebe House is one of the earliest historic house museums in the nation.  Its architecture, outstanding regional furniture collection and Gertrude Jekyll Garden combine to create one of the most authentic house museums in the region.


Through tours, educational programs and special events, The Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden continues to give visitors a sense of what life was like in the 18th century.

Come join us! The Glebe House hosts a number of family events throughout the year including a Colonial Fair & Muster Day, All Hollow's Eve and Holiday Festival.  



The house was built about 1740 and is an architecturally interesting and unusual combination of gambrel and saltbox roof styles.  It was first occupied by Woodbury's first Anglican priest, John Rutgers Marshall of New York City, who arrived with his wife Sarah in 1771.
