Homestead History

Ensconced in the scenic hilly countryside of Davidsonville, Maryland, Homestead’s original facility claims to be “the largest enclosed garden center in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas.” Founded by Don Riddle, Jr. in 1973, Homestead’s nursery also has “the area’s largest selection of annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs.”
