Did you know that at the turn of the 20th century, the mother house of the Brothers of the
Christian Schools stood where the Alpine Garden is today? And that there
was a quarry in operation in the northern part of the Arboretum?
What happened in the late 70s to the huge elms towering over the Shade Garden?
The Botanical Garden is a huge site with a history spanning eight decades!
Or should we say histories? For each garden has
a fascinating, and sometimes surprising, past.
We invite you to tour
the outdoor gardens: a virtual tour guide for the 80th anniversary of your Botanical Garden!
