Dot Tyler Garden

This garden, adjacent to the Jones House, honors a member of the Tryon Palace Garden Committee. It is laid out in a modern mixture of beds and lawn, but the plantings are similar to those in mid 19th-century New Bern gardens.Occupying part of what was the Jones House’s 19th-century side yard, and facing the Robert Hay House, honors Mrs. James (“Dot”) Tyler, a member of the Tryon Palace Garden Committee. It is laid out in a modern plan of beds and lawn, yet nearly all plantings are what would have been cultivated in New Bern’s mid 19th-century gardens.
