Hovey House

Loretta Gottman and Karen Walker, Coordinators.

Location:  The Hovey House is located at the Southeast corner of East Fourth and Walnut Streets in Mt. Vernon, Indiana directly across the street from the Posey County Courthouse. The historic home was the residence of former Indiana Governor Alvin Hovey.  

SWIMGA took over responsibility for the grounds in 2010.  The gardens feature a variety of flowering shrubs as well as many perennials – both sun and shade loving.
