Welcome to the Bailey Museum!

The Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum is located in the birthplace and childhood home of America’s “Father of Modern Horticulture” and a founder of the “New Agrarian” philosophy, Liberty Hyde Bailey, Jr. We are a museum, National Historic Site, garden, park and educational outreach center, in South Haven, Michigan. We welcome you to come and investigate one of history’s most interesting people. Feel free to join us for events throughout the year.

Activities are supported by a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
