Historical Information

The Little Rock Garden Club was organized in 1923, the first garden club in Arkansas. In 1929, the club led in the organization of the Arkansas Federation of Garden Clubs. In 1960, the Little Rock Garden Club became the first club in Arkansas to be selected for membership in The Garden Club of America.

Early projects of the Little Rock Garden Club included restoration of the Old State House and the Arkansas Territorial Restoration (now the Historic Arkansas Museum). The Club also successfully promoted the preservation of native dogwood and holly in Arkansas. The Little Rock Garden Club has provided landscaping for several parks and the grounds of several public buildings in central Arkansas, as well as promoting horticultural and environmental education.
