The C. R. Keith Arboretum is located at the old King-Garrett homesite 7 miles northwest of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In the 1890s, the frame house was built around the original 1830s log cabin. This is the view of the house after the renovations made by the Keith family ca. 1967.


The mission of the C. R. Keith Arboretum is to create and preserve a large and diverse collection of temperate woody tree and shrub species for study and enjoyment by researchers, horticultural students, professional horticulturists, and the general public.

The Arboretum began in the 1970s on a small scale. It has grown in size over the years until it now comprises 25 acres within 58 acres of conserved land located 7 miles northwest of Chapel Hill, NC. Currently, there are approximately 4,000 labeled species with an emphasis on diversity.

This property is under extensive conservation easements. The existing house can be renovated or replaced but no other buildings can be erected except outbuildings pertinant to the arboretum.
