About the Florham Arboretum

Florham Arboretum at Fairleigh Dickinson University is situated on the Fairleigh Dickinson University campus in Madison, NJ. It is the former Florham estate of Florence Vanderbilt Twombly and Hamilton McKown Twombly. Developed in the 1890’s, some notable landscape architects who had a role in its landscape were: Frederick Law Olmsted, the Olmsted brothers, Warren H. Manning, and Brinley and Holbrook. Management of the estate’s landscape and greenhouses was under the direction of Arthur Herrington, noted horticulturalist and plant breeder, who came to Florham from Kew Gardens, England.

The Florham Arboretum will provide educational opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and public focusing on preservation of culturally significant landscape elements, sustainability and the environmental impact of the campus, as well as providing a living laboratory for research. It will also serve to promote the campus’ historic and cultural value to the public.
