Paxson Hill Farm Nursery & Gardens Closes, Future Uncertain

A popular attraction in Solebury Township has closed.


A popular local attraction, Paxson Hill Farm Nursery and Gardens in Solebury Township, has closed its gates.

The beloved destination located on Comford Road has been a haven for garden enthusiasts and tourists, drawing crowds with its mystical garden and well-stocked nursery.

The announcement came through a post on the farm’s Facebook page, breaking news of the closure and mentioning plans for an upcoming estate sale.


The news quickly spread and garnered over 250 comments from supporters expressing their sadness and disappointment.

Many shared memories of past visits, while others inquired about the future of the property.

“Unfortunately, we are now permanently closed due to a badly written will that can’t legally do what was intended,” the Paxson Hill Farm Nursery and Gardens account replied to a disappointed visitor.


“We need a buyer who’s willing to keep it as a public garden,” the account wrote to another.

David R. McShane, who had owned and nurtured the farm since the late 1990s, passed away last June at the age of 82.

The gardens were designed by Bruce Gangawer and span over 30 acres.
