"It is a marvelous planet on which we ride. It is a great privilege to live thereon, to partake in the journey, and to experience its goodness."

Welcome to the Bailey Museum!
The Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum & Gardens is located in the birthplace and childhood home of Liberty Hyde Bailey, Jr., America’s “Father of Modern Horticulture”, and  a founder of the “New Agrarian” philosophy.  Located in South Haven, Michigan, it is a National Historic Site, garden, park, museum and educational outreach center.

"My life has been a continuous fulfillment of dreams. It appears that everything I saw and did has a new, and perhaps, more significant meaning, every time I see it. The earth is good. It is a privilege to live thereon."
 

-L.H. Bailey
