Jarrettsville was named after an 1800s farming family so it's no surprise that Jarrettsville is abundant in farms with an altogether more rural personality than its neighboring towns. Along with new custom built homes on large lots, you'll find a plethora of established communities, all with impressive acreage. If you crave wide open space and enough back yard to host a large cookout or your own little league game, Jarrettsville makes an excellent choice. In any given neighborhood or town function, you'll find a sincere sense of community and a rural charm.
Jarrettsville is home to Ladew Gardens, a variety of parks including Rocks State Park, and a wildlife center. Ladew was named one of the top 5 gardens in North America. It's called a topiary garden but offers far more than just topiaries. Ladew also hosts events throughout spring, summer, and fall, including festivals, camps, lectures, and concerts.
With its rural landscape, Jarrettsville is also horse country. My Lady's Manor, which straddles Jarrettsville and Monkton, holds Steeplechase Races each year that benefit Ladew Gardens. You can't drive along Jarrettsville Pike without noticing the horse farm signs. It's a great place to take riding lessons or stable your own horse, needless to say.
If you enjoy a stroll around a farmer's market on a Saturday morning, the smell of fresh cut grass nearly always permeating the air, a picnic on a blanket while listening to an outdoor concert, or perhaps tending your own backyard garden, Jarrettsville offers ample space to plant your roots.
