History

The Granary was part of the original Twin Inns located on Carlsbad Boulevard and Carlsbad Village Drive. The Twin Inns became a city landmark and favorite stop for travelers during the 1920s, with its signature giant plaster chickens in front of the building used to promote its famous chicken dinners. The building now known as the Granary was used to store feed supplies. The building was relocated to Magee Park once the Twin Inns changed ownership in 1984.

Historical Gardens

The historical gardens reflect Carlsbad’s agricultural heritage, and feature a nationally-registered rose garden. Separated into several rose beds, visitors will find over 125 different roses that represent 15 different rose families. Development of these rose beds earned Carlsbad the honor of being named an “American Rose City” in 2002 by the American Rose Society. In addition the gardens include a Victorian herb bed, a native southern Californian bed, a Carlsbad commercial growers’ bed and a patriotic “red, white and blue” bed.  All of the gardens are maintained through the combined volunteer efforts of the Arboretum Society, the Carlsbad Historical Society and the California Coastal Rose Society, as well as city staff.
