Emerson Gardens was once the location of a florist and greenhouse operation that was an institution in Lebanon for over 75 years. This business was part of almost every Upper Valley occasion for years. The owners, Frank and Janet Canillas decided to sell the business due to time and retirement plans.

The present owners chose to continue the use of the name “Emerson Gardens”  that had come to be a constitution in the Upper Valley region. The owners knowing the future demand for quality housing and also having an interest in developing housing that fits the community, felt Emerson Gardens was a perfect development opportunity.
