The Cottage Project

Beginning Summer 2018

Fundraising for the restoration of the Cottage Garden will begin this summer. We value your memories of the Cottage Garden and would like to collect the community's stories and photos of the Cottage for a future display. To share your stories: post them on Instagram or on our Facebook page using the hashtag #thecottageproject, or stop by the Education & Visitor's Center to add to our Cottage Project Journal.
