The Colonial Revival period was a popular movement in New England in the early years of the 20th century. The Elizabeth Perkins House, a rare example of this movement, is open to the public on a regular basis. The house with it's period furnishings and antiques adds to the enjoyment of the visitor to the historic buildings of York. Try to visit inside as well as outside when you search for your prize.
There is a lovely Victorian garden, complete with rose arbors where several couples tie the knot each year. Following in this theme you will find the Prim Rose. Walk through the gardens to the opposite end. See the old well? What a wonderful example of stonework! Walk around it and find a small woodland garden with some Rhodies, Jack in the Pulpits and other plants. Behind this garden you will see a small "brook". There are 2 pipes in the ground. Facing the pipes look to your left. About 4 feet away under some rocks and debris lies Prim Rose. Please enjoy then rehide well.
