Ornamental statues of lawn of the mansion. The Myers Arboretum is located behind the mansion lawn. Mr. Myers converted the town dump into an arboretum which has been given to the community. Each tree is identified with its botanical name and country of origin. On the right is a small park with a carillon donated to the borough by the Warehime family. If you pass through here at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM or 6:00 PM, you may hear the bells.
