James Rose Center

506 E. Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ 07450


The James Rose Center, a non-profit landscape research and study foundation, is located at the former home of renowned landscape architect James Rose. Built in 1953, the home has been listed in the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and was awarded a 1999 American Society of Landscape Architects Centennial Medallion, one of only three sites in New Jersey to receive such an honor. Visitors are invited to tour and photograph this distinctive work of modern landscape architecture that masterfully integrates indoor and outdoor space to make small spaces feel larger. Over the past 25 years, the foundation has also offered environmental education through lectures, tours, exhibitions, and other public events.


  • Tour the home and garden to experience one of the most distinctive works of modern landscape architecture
  • Explore the center’s collection of writings by architectural pioneer James Rose
  • Attend an educational lecture or event
  • Following your visit, venture to one of the more than 50 restaurants in Ridgewood within walking distance of the site
