Museum Reception: Grand Opening "Park Seed: A Celebration of 150 Years"

Grand Opening Reception of Park Seed Exhibit: A Celebration of 150 years

All are invited!

Celebrate the opening of "Park Seed: 150 Years", a historical exhibit in partnership with SC Festival of Flowers. The Museum welcomes you to this special anniversary exhibit. 

This event will feature light refreshments and is FREE for the public. 

Who would ever have imagined that 15-year-old George W. Park, advertising seeds for sale from his own small garden, would found America's most beloved mail-order gardening company? The year was 1868, and George placed an ad in the Rural American -- a daring move, since it cost a whopping $3.50. To his surprise, within weeks he had received $6.50 in orders. The course of his life was set, and generations of American gardeners are the better for it!

So come visit the Museum and explore Park Seed Company's rich history and fond memories. 

The Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
