Named one of Virginia's Treasures by the Department of Conservation & Recreation, the Chesapeake Arboretum is a 48-acre natural classroom dedicated to promoting horticultural and environmental awareness. The Arboretum headquarters is an eighteenth century farmhouse with theme gardens that include a fragrance and antique rose garden. The farmhouse was built in 1730 with an addition built in 1822.

One of Virginia's finest trail systems meanders through a mature hardwood forest with many varieties of native plants and trees. Part of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail South Chesapeake Loop, this site is not to be missed. Click here for the Arboretum Trail Map.
