SNAPSHOT: Museum Garden in Full Bloom

Aug 02, 2016 05:46PM ● Published by Steven Jack

If you’re looking to take a pleasant stroll one these nice August days, stop by the Little White School Museum and visit the Heritage Perennial Garden.

The garden, which stretches for 200 feet along the museum grounds’ east border, is now in full bloom with a variety of old-fashioned perennial flowers, all maintained by the Hilltop Garden Club, which meets fall, winter, and spring at the museum.

The garden was begun in 1978 by Ford Lippold, then the Oswegoland Park District’s executive director. He maintained it until his death in 1997. The garden club took over maintenance several years ago.

The museum is located at 72 Polk Street (Jackson at Polk Street), just two blocks from historic downtown Oswego.
