Purpose

The purpose is to provide an attractive and educational garden located on the grounds of the Historical Society.

History of Committee

The committee started in 2005 as a project to help out with one bed located on the grounds. We have provided signage with the various plants and have also put in a prairie garden.

In 2019, the committee renovated the garden as they began the process of having the area certified as a Monarch Way Station.  In September of that summer, a monarch chrysalis was spotted in the garden!
