The garden at the Mynderse-Frederick House is in full bloom

GUILDERLAND — The Guilderland Garden Club invites the public to visit the perennial garden at the Mynderse-Frederick House located at 451 Main Street, Route 146, in Guilderland Center.  Garden club members began the development of this lovely garden in 2009 with the help of the Guilderland Parks Department and Master Gardener Keith Lee.

Development is ongoing with most plants donated by members of the club or residents of the surrounding area.  The garden is open to the public, and club members welcome you to come sit on the bench, rest, think, roam, read, relax, picnic at one of the picnic tables (please carry out your trash), or just enjoy the beauty of the flowers.  Restrooms are not available.

The garden reflects the dignity and history of this wonderful old house and the club would love to share it with you.  In the fall of 2013, the garden club received an award from the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State for landscape design.

To visit the house, which is open by appointment, email Mary Ellen Johnson at  For more information on the Guilderland Garden Club, please visit the website at

Editor’s note: Linda Miller is the vice president of the Guilderland Garden Club.
