Gardening for Wildlife: Kilgore-Lewis House

Hello AUTUMN! We are all so happy to say hello to Fall and welcome beautiful colors, falling leaves, and cooler temperatures, right?

This is a perfect time to come and explore the plants and animals that have made the beautiful property of the Kilgore-Lewis House their home.

The Greenville Council of Garden Clubs would love to invite the public of all ages, especially students, families and photographers, to visit the grounds of the Kilgore-Lewis House in Greenville! Located at 560 N. Academy Street in downtown Greenville, these grounds are home to wildlife specimens and are also an accredited Arboretum. There is also an historical water site, a restored spring (c. 1765), beautiful tall and stately trees, spaces that offer plants/leaves for study, as well as glorious location to do nothing more than walk the beautiful 5.43 acre grounds. Artists and photographers are welcome also!

One of our premises here is to “garden for wildlife” and we would love for the general public and educational/civic groups to enjoy this space.
To schedule a private tour, please call 864-232-3020. The historical home is open from 10–2 Wednesday through Friday and the grounds are open 7 days a week from 9:00-5:00 pm.

Do plan to join us and experience the delights of nature and history that we have to offer.■
