Some history of our property: The Swenson Beachfront property has a unique history. Originally it was home to the famous York Fuchsia Gardens, in operation from the 1940's to 1960's. This flower nursery shipped over 1500 varieties of fuchsia throughout the USA. After closing in 1962, fuchsias, rhodies and shrubbery grew wild.
The Swenson family took ownership in 1988 and converted the property into our 'Garden of Weeden'. You can enjoy our heavily flowered grounds and create your own fresh flower arrangement. Feel free pull weeds too!
