The Reflection Garden


Located on the Hay Street side of the museum, the Reflection Garden is a peaceful, fresh air way to experience the museum. The garden is surrounded by lush magnolia, live oak and elm trees. Bordered by seasonal flowers, the garden provides a tranquil place to contemplate the history of America’s finest. The garden walks are formed with granite paver stones purchased to support the museum and honor an individual or organization “past-present-future”.

The Liberty Tree

The Liberty Tree that stands in the far corner of the garden near Hillsborough Street has a special history. In June 1775, 55 local patriots formed the “Liberty Point Resolves” and pledged their lives and fortunes to the Continental Congress, stating they would do whatever it takes to support them against the tyranny of King George.  After their declaration, it is said they tacked the resolution to this Tree.   They did this 13 months prior to the Declaration of Independence.

The Sunken Garden

The Sunken Garden is located in the central part of the Reflection Garden.  Lined with Trees and benches, it is a serene location to ponder the names etched in stone on the memorial walks, and the heroism demonstrated inside the museum.

A Fire Pit, for the sole purpose of Flag Retirement Ceremonies, has recently been installed in the Sunken Garden.  The Flag Retirement Ceremonies are conducted by the ASOMF and by other community groups.
