Joseph and Ilma Uihlein established Afterglow Farm in 1929 as a country residence. A Germanic-style timber and fieldstone cottage is set amid large informal country gardens. These gardens feature long-blooming, deer-resistant perennials anchored with specimen trees. Afterglow also features a Circle Garden with informal, exuberant plantings restrained within a formal structure of gravel paths around a central fish pool and fountain. A vine-covered fence, ornamental grasses, and a decorative iron gate enclose this special garden. A Terrace Garden features a stonework floor inspired by the Thyme Walk at Highgrove House in England. In addition, Afterglow Farm includes a woodland of maple, beech, and ash, wooded ravines and paths, two ponds, native prairie gardens, two small orchards, and ornamental stone and ironwork on approximately 120 acres along the spectacular Lake Michigan shoreline.
