A beautifully designed garden by Linda Schorr was made possible by a generous donation from the Americana Foundation. This area is the main viewed garden from the Conference Center and a truly restful area to sit and enjoy. The majority of the varieties in this cottage garden planting were in cultivation prior to the turn of the century. The variety of plants in this area demonstrates that gardening has long been a popular pastime. Featured plants are roses, tall serviceberry shrub, hydrangeas, fernleaf bleeding hearts and a mix of ferns.
