Brenton Arboretum Charity Profile
The Brenton Arboretum was established by Sue and J.C. (Buz) Brenton and their children because of their love of trees, the importance of trees to our world, and their desire to preserve a beautiful and important natural area. The first trees were planted in the 121-acre Arboretum during the spring of 1997. The Master Plan was created by Anthony Tyznik, who for many years was the landscape architect for the Morton Arboretum in Chicago, Illinois. The Brenton Arboretum is a non-profit organization and is open to the public.This land is part of the original “Home Farm,” which was acquired by Dr. James Brenton and his son, William Henry, soon after they arrived here from Indiana in 1853 by covered wagon.
