Lockerly Arboretum Welcomes You

In observance of the holiday season, Lockerly Arboretum will be closed December 21 to January 3.  We will reopen on January 4.


The mission of Lockerly Arboretum is to inspire an understanding and appreciation of horticulture, nature and heritage. 

Dedicated to providing plant lovers of all ages a serene setting for observing and learning about horticulture, nature and heritage, Lockerly Arboretum aspires to become a nationally accredited arboretum while preserving and protecting our antebellum crown jewel, Rose Hill.


Visiting Lockerly

The dream of the founder of Lockerly Arboretum, Mr. E.J. Grassmann, was for Lockerly to be a gift to a community that he loved.  Today, we honor his dream by being free and open to the public.  Visitors to Lockerly may walk or drive our grounds, hike the nature trails, or have a picnic in the meadow at no charge.

Our hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm

We are open on Saturdays from 10am - 4pm, March 1 through November 15.


Rose Hill

Built in 1852 by Judge Daniel Tucker in the classic Greek Revival style, Rose Hill stands as a tribute to southern grace and charm.  Rose Hill was placed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2017 and can be toured for a $3 admission fee.

Event Rental

Rose Hill and the grounds of Lockerly are available for rent for weddings and other special events.  Call our office at 478-4752-2112 for pricing and availability.

Customized education programs focusing on horticulture, geology, life sciences, and environmental studies, in compliance with the Georgia Performance Standards, are offered to school groups of all ages. We also offer programming tailored to Home School students. With indoor and outdoor classrooms, Lockerly Arboretum provides an excellent environment to facilitate learning in these fields of study.
