Fairmount Park Historic Preservation Trust
Fairmount Park Historic Preservation Trust: Grant monies of $1,500 helped fund a low maintenance and historically appropriate garden around a walled, sunken garden with an interior pool at Thomas Mansion. Originally an 1880’s conservatory stood on the walls but that was torn down in the 1920’s. Hardy and native plants as well as bulbs were planted in the beds. Attractive new benches are installed and make the space more welcoming.
