Garden Club of North Carolina

Record #:
The Garden Club of North Carolina organized on November 6, 1925, when garden clubs in Reidsville, High Point, Winston-Salem, Raleigh, and Asheville came together to seek to broaden members' interest and knowledge in gardening. Club activities soon expanded statewide, such as placement of twenty-nine Blue Star Markers on state highways between 1949 and 1950 and creation of three memorial gardens--the Elizabethan Gardens (Manteo), Martha Franck Fragrance Garden (Raleigh), and the Daniel Boone Native Gardens (Boone).
