Please join us for a tour of the beautiful Smith-Gilbert Gardens, a City of Kennesaw Botanical Garden. Smith-Gilbert Gardens is 16 acres of serene setting with over 3,000 species of plants. At the center of Smith-Gilbert Gardens is the historic Hiram Butler House, dating back over 150 years. The house was once owned by Mr. Butler, a Confederate railroad man, who worked the lines most of his life and was present during the “Great Locomotive Chase.” In 1970, Mr. Richard Smith and Dr. Robert Gilbert bought the Hiram Butler House and surrounding acreage.
We are only able to accommodate 40 participants; therefore, please register by May 1.
