The Herb Garden at Historic Fort Steuben
Although there wasn't an herb garden at the original Fort Steuben, there were supplies of dried herbs. Some were used medicinally, some were used for flavoring or preserving and some were used as insect repellants or air fresheners.
The herb garden at Historic Fort Steuben has a variety of herbs that were commonly used in the 18th century. For information on some of them, click here: Herb Garden Brochure.
