As 60 people huddled on a trail in Montgomery Pinetum beneath the looming presence of an historic two-story stone greenhouse, Anne Young spoke about the man who made it all possible.

“He was a conservationist, a preservationist, those were terms that were not in vogue then,” she said about Col. Robert Montgomery who, along with his wife Nell, purchased the property in 1922.

The previous owners, Frederick and Florence Gotthold, had called the site in Cos Cob “Wild Acres.”
