Van Vleck Gardens in Montclair, New Jersey began as a 12-acre private estate in 1868. In 1992 the heirs of the Van Vleck family gave the house and the gardens to the non-profit Montclair Foundation.
The private gardens are free and open to the public from dawn to dusk 365 days a year. There are classes, concerts, and special events that take place through the year.
The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, and the estate is especially famous for the wisteria blooming around the house.
