History

Josiah Emery owned 175 acres of land in the Town of Aurora; his descendants lived and worked on this land for over one hundred years. In 1925, The Parks Commission purchased the land from Helen B. Emery, forming Emery Park. Emery Park had an abundance of attractions from the beginning- a rock garden, an amphitheatre (original capacity 600), formal gardens, stone arch footbridge and Emery Inn (Est. 1926,used as a museum & restaurant but was the former home of the Emery family). The Park contains sixty-nine structures, 95% of the structures built in or before 1935. Emery Park has evolved into a 489-acre park.
