Comments

This garden was designed as a living, organic memorial to the women who fought for the right to vote. There are ornamental grasses and prairie plants in slightly bermed beds with sinuous, low grass paths and walkways snaking between these beds. These paths lead to a terminus of woven metal mesh. The metal mesh is timeline trellis set in a stepped cement wall and supports markers noting names and dates pertinent to women’s suffrage. There is no plant signage.
