Fall Lecture Series: The Mariners’ Museum Park: The Early Years, 1929 – 1936

Presented by Rand Milam

Cost: Free with General Admission

In 1929, The Mariners’ Museum founder Archer Huntington decided to surround the Museum with a forested park and grounds to encompass the Waters Creek watershed. The extensive writings and maps relating to the park’s planning, landscaping, and planting demonstrate the immense effort and attention to detail that went into creating this “central park” of the Peninsula. Master Gardener and Tree Steward Rand Milam has been conducting a survey in the Park for over a year, and in this special presentation, he will share his work and help us understand the Park’s historical and botanical significance.
