Development of a new garden feature is underway at the Manship House Museum.  AmeriCorps team Delta 5, MDAH volunteers, and garden specialist Michael Gentry prepared the walkways and beds for an heirloom vegetable garden this past fall.  The garden has now been planted with varieties of vegetables and flowers popular in the nineteenth century.  This first planting will serve as a test garden to learn what will grow best in the new garden.
