  • The Holy Earth: Bailey's Vision at 100


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, educational outreach center, and culture hub in the small town of South Haven, Michigan. We welcome you, your friends, and your family to come and investigate one of history’s most interesting people. Feel free to join us for events throughout the summer and, if you’re so inclined, we hope you’ll make a small contribution to help keep Bailey’s beliefs alive.
