Perkins Center for the Arts Arboretum at Evergreen Lawn

395 Kings Highway , Moorestown, NJ 08057


The Arboretum at Evergreen Lawn surrounding Perkins Center for the Arts was first established in 1815 as Fairview Nurseries, which specialized in fruit, shrubs, and native and ornamental trees. Today, the Arboretum is maintained by the Moorestown Garden Club and Moorestown Township. A 1910 Tudor Revival style home sits on the property and was built by Herbert Wise, a noted Philadelphia architect and one of the founding editors of House and Garden Magazine. The main home and carriage house were bequeathed to Moorestown Township in 1965 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The Perkins Center for the Arts leases the property, and – along with the surrounding arboretum – is home to programs that reach an annual audience of over 36,000. The regional arts center is recognized throughout the state for innovative programs that bring professional artists and community members together in an instructional and creative arts environment.
