A printable map will be available online with a little history and pictures.

In 1959, five women who enjoyed gardening organized a club and began meeting in each other's homes. Others joined and soon began investigating land or a building to be used as a Garden Center.  The property finally chosen was located at 480 West Yale Street, with almost an acre of land and a well-constructed building!


The main building housed the Church of God, which was built in 1950 by several members of their own congregation.  Two small rooms In the rear of the church were used for Sunday School classes;  the pastor, his wife and two children lived in a small cottage on the property.

In 1981, the property was purchased by Lemon Bay Garden Club; since that time, a kitchen and a dining room were added and many improvements have been made in the gardens. 


The membership has grown to over 100.  Maintenance of the building and gardens is done by dedicated  members, and, every Friday morning, members are working in the gardens and have plants for sale .

During the Historical Tour on August  28th, we hope the community will visit us from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.  There will be knowledgeable members available to answer gardening questions and plants will be for sale.  Come visit Lemon Bay Garden Club on Aug 26th.
