Harrybrooke Park was the home of Frank and Elizabeth Harden from 1943-1965. The home was their 48-acre "retreat" from city life. Frank made his fortune in Irish Linen Handkerchiefs. Frank and Elizabeth Harden held the first wedding to be held on this property. When Liz passed in 1964, and Frank followed in 1965, they left their beautiful estate to the people of the town, and not to the town itself. By holding your wedding in Harrybrooke Park, you are making a donation to a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to recreation and wellness with a dedication of natural preservation as well.
