All summer long.

The Museum welcomes you to this special anniversary exhibit which chronicles Park Seed Company’s rich history and fond memories.

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!
