This weekend, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden celebrated its history during Heritage Weekend.  The event included a roaming barbershop quartet, a historic bicycle display (honoring the site’s past as the Lakeside Wheel Club), and volunteers depicting Lewis Ginter and his niece, Grace Arents, who lived at the site from 1913 until her death in 1926.  I was excited to see the garden packed with families engaging in the festivities and enjoying my beautiful garden!

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden staff had a "fancy hat" birthday party for Grace Arents to kick off Heritage Weekend (we had our own interpretations of "fancy hats"). Pictured here from left to right, Grace Chapman, Frank Robinson, and Larry Bartenstein.
