Peel Mansion Museum & Heritage Gardens Coupons, Savings and Museum Description for 2019
The Peel Mansion site is also an outdoor museum of historic roses, perennials, and native plants. Careful research over many months resulted in an extensive inventory of nineteenth century plantings. Descendants of early settlers were interviewed for their childhood memories of early gardens. The 1845 Jacob Smith Nursery list from Fayetteville served as a documentary source. Various vignette gardens are interlaced among curvilinear walks and large shade trees creating a most appropriate setting for this great historic building of Northwest Arkansas.
