• Join Our Community

    There has never been a better time to join the Bailey Museum. Your membership or other donation directly supports our nonprofit’s efforts to bring accessible outdoor learning to our schools and community, to create exceptional exhibits dedicated to Bailey’s significant life and work, to host dynamic programs and speakers, to promote gardening and sustainable farming, and to keep Bailey’s vision alive. It also lets us keep you up to date and extend reciprocal membership in the American Horticultural Society.

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.
