The Liberty Garden

In accordance with President George W. Bush’s suggestion that American Garden Clubs dedicate a garden to the victims of 9/11, the Southampton Garden Club established a garden in the spring of 2002 at the fire station on the corner of 27A and St. Andrews Road. Since firefighters were among those most affected by the tragedy, a planting near one of stations seemed an ideal way to honor them. The garden includes shrubs, as well as perennials, donated by Bob Frankenbach who also helped with the planting. The design and planting of the garden is an on-going project.
