Rosenthal Gardens is a 17-unit senior housing complex on Kirkham Street in Branford, which was offered to the town for use as affordable housing by Jane Rosenthal and her late husband Dr. Richard Rosenthal. In 2006, the project converted the existing residence, a Georgian Manor home, into five senior housing units, and constructed a brand new building to house an additional twelve units. The project is a shining example of historical restoration paired with conscientious development.
Approximately one acre of the property contains a garden known as Twin Pools because of two man-made pools that are part of the design. A small walkway meanders through the garden and over a small bridge. The trees and shrubs are native species and rare in their size. The original private garden was renovated in 2006 with the support of the Branford Garden Club and the Branford Community Foundation.
