Be sure to join us April 11 as we unveil the newly-restored Olmsted Garden.
In case you weren’t able to join us last night for the Garden Month lecture, “The Olmsted Garden,” here’s what you missed.
Shortly after Arthur’s death in 1943, Ninah Cummer turned her attention from her gardens to her passion for art and began to dream about the creation of a museum on her property.
While Arthur and his brother Waldo led the Cummer Lumber Company, their wives masterminded the gardens surrounding their homes. Those gardens are now one of the glories of the Museum.
Like her husband, Arthur, Ninah Cummer was active in civic and charitable organizations. She distinguished herself quite early in Jacksonville by organizing relief after the city’s staggering fire of 1901 and as a Red Cross volunteer during World War I.
