Reitz Home Museum Garden

Evansville, Downtown Historic District on First Street

Coordinated by Darlene Madden, Brenda Mounts, and Kathy Schapker

The Reitz Home Museum Garden is located in the historic preservation district of Evansville on the corner of S.E. First and Chestnut Streets.  It is predominantly a shade garden with replica urns from the late 1800s and a small rose garden cascading over the visitors’ entryway. A variety of hostas, ferns, and hydrangeas are featured.  The Victorian Era feel to this garden makes it a lovely showcase for the many visitors that tour the museum.
