This is a review of Green Briar Jam Kitchen's AMAZING strawberry jam. The jam is magnificently made without pectin. As a consequence, the flavor is unparalleled -- and the jam is not thick and set. It is more like a thick strawberry sauce with whole...More

There was very little on display about Thornton Burgess, a famous children's author in his day. The museum was mostly a library of his books. The wildflower garden was lovely. At our mid-afternoon stop, the animals weren't available and we couldn't visit.

Sorry, My mistake. I was thinking Heritage Museum and Gardens not allowing pets. Greenbrier probably does but please call 508.888.6870 to receive their current policy from their staff.
