- Peter Rabbit (the American version) loved his briar patch, as did his creator, Thornton W. Burgess. Burgess, a native of nearby Sandwich, was a naturalist as well as a storyteller, and the Burgess Society runs this center adjacent to the 57-acre briar patch in his memory. There are nature trails, a wildflower garden, a host of programs, the Robert S. Swain Natural History Library, and a jam kitchen and gift shop.
Admission by donation.
The Thorton W Burgess Museum, filled with Peter Rabbit memorabilia, is three miles to the west, in Sandwich.
