Exhibit Description

The Museum and Garden Club have had close ties for many years. The Museum houses an archive of the Club’s original documents and photographs and will showcase the history of the Garden Club from its start in 1929 until today. J. Gilbert Smith’s wife, Margaret, was active in the club in its early years, and served as recording secretary. Today the Museum supports the Club’s annual Plant Exchange and the Garden Club provides volunteers weekly to tend the Museum grounds.
