The snow-delayed talk about the legendary Spite House (that floated to Rockport by barge) will be Tuesday, March 24th at 10 a.m. in the Picker Room of the Camden Public Library. Marylee Dodge, owner of Spite House with her husband Charles Dodge, and Theresa Mattor, coauthor of Designing the Maine Landscape by DownEast Press, will talk about “The History of the House and Gardens of Spite House.”
The Spite House gardens were the centerpiece for many of the club’s July tours, starting with the very first, in 1948. After that, for 35 more tours, the gardens of Spite House and the Camden Garden Club Tour Day became synonymous. Now, in the club’s centennial birthday year, the gardens of Spite House will again be on the tour: July 16th, 2015. Tickets are available for purchase now at our website Camdengardenclub.com.
The Camden Garden Club is a part of the Garden Club Federation of Maine, as well as National Garden Clubs, Inc. and is always eager for enthusiastic new members. For more photo and information visit The Cultural Landscape Foundation.
