Vintage Wisconsin Gardens Book Event in Neenah
Wisconsin Historical Society Press author Lee Somerville will talk about her book, "Vintage Wisconsin Gardens: A History of Home Gardening," at Neenah Public Library. She will also be available to sign books.
As Wisconsin's population moved from farmsteads into villages, towns and cities, the state saw a growing interest in gardening as a leisure activity and source of civic pride. In Vintage Wisconsin Gardens
, Somerville introduces readers to the region's ornamental gardens of the 19th and early 20th centuries, showcasing the "vernacular" gardens created by landscaping enthusiasts for their own use and pleasure.
