Our Story

GardenClub Gate Separator

In March of 1916, a group of twelve women, all ardent gardeners, met to form the Garden Club of Lexington.  Membership was limited to fifty, with twenty or more county residents.  The planting of trees on Richmond Road was the club’s first large civic project.  The trees have grown and matured through the years, transforming the space into a stately boulevard and an attractive entrance to the city.
