New Reasons to Visit in 2017

Learn about all of the new things we have to offer for 2017!

  1. Hobbit House & Garden

Thanks to a handful of dedicated volunteers and donors, we were able to purchase and construct a six foot tall Hobbit House in our Children’s Garden.  This impressive structure was completed last September and has become an instant favorite among both children and adults.  We plan to complete the surrounding garden in the spring of 2017 and celebrate with a Hobbit Party on Friday, June 16th at 10 am.  Don’t miss out on the fun!
