About Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden

The Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden embodies the dramatically different passions of two extraordinary individuals. Bethlehem pastor Rev. Joseph Bellamy, a renowned leader of the emotional religious revival of the 1740s known as the Great Awakening, built the house around 1754. In 1912, New Yorkers Henry and Eliza Ferriday acquired it as a summer residence. Eliza and her daughter Caroline designed the formal garden featuring a significant collection of historic roses, peonies, and lilacs. Martha Hall Kelly’s debut novel Lilac Girls focuses on social philanthropist Caroline’s work to gain war reparations and medical attention for the “lapins” (rabbits) - female prisoners subjected to medical testing at the Nazi’s Ravensbrück concentration camp. Lost Roses, Kelly’s Lilac Girls prequel, follows three indomitable women from St. Petersburg to Paris under the shadow of World War I.
