Do you know anything about the history of the River Oaks Garden Club?
Founding member Louise Stevenson began the River Oaks Garden Club in October of 1927. The first meeting had about 29 members and has grown to more than 400 members now in Houston working on civic and public projects.
This large garden club was accepted into the Garden Club of America in 1938. Since then they’ve been working hard to put on beautiful events and preserve the beautiful gardens we all know and love here in Houston.
Can I visit the gardens at other times?
Absolutely! Even though this event is special and fun you can always visit the Bayou Bend Gardens. There’s nearly 14 acres of natural woodlands that are preserved and maintained so that people can enjoy the natural beauty of this amazing city!
