Charlottesville Historical Society Garden

Dedicated on October 13, 2003, this Garden for Peace is located near the busy downtown mall in Charlottesville, Virginia. The existing space was revamped at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Historical Society by its members, led by Ellie Montgomery Atuk and Ethel deNeveu and includes indigenous foliage with luxurious flowers and deep green colors.

Having a Garden for Pece in this part of the U.S is welcome in a community historically known as the site of war skirmishes and community involvment was imperative to its creation. The Historical Society plans to use the garden not only as a place of relaxation and meditation, but as a site for students to learn about medicinal herbs.
