Chinqua-Penn Plantation Gardens 1996 Minnette C. Duffy Award

Record #:
The Minnette C. Duffy Award is the state's highest award for the preservation, restoration, or maintenance of grounds related to historic structures. The Chinqua-Penn Plantation gardens in Reidsville were developed in the 1920s. However, subsequent owners did not keep them up, and by the 1980s, the gardens had fallen into ruin. The Chinqua-Penn Foundation, Inc., formed in 1992, restored the gardens according to their 1920s layout. The Foundation received the award in 1996.
