Hidden Garden in Downtown Bryan: Another blog in a series to reveal some lesser known gardens in our area

The A&M Garden Club has a long history of community service in the Bryan/College Station Community, with many gardens in public areas the club has helped with over the years. Another garden many may not be aware of is located at the Carnegie Library in downtown Bryan, 111 South Main Street. Look for Xeriscape friendly plants including Turkscap, Malvaviscus arborerus var. drummondii, which blooms throughout the summer, attracting hummingbirds with red flowers. Some rose bushes and crepe myrtles also remain of the original plantings at the Carnegie Garden that A&M Garden Club contributed to. A large granite marker at the site lists A&M Garden Club as a contributor to this garden. Carnegie Gardenturkscap

Any other club members have details to share about when this garden was established in 1995? or know about other hidden public gardens in the area our club helped make happen?

Next time you are in downtown Bryan, consider visiting this small, out of the way garden to enhance your exploration of the area and knowledge of A&M Garden Club history.
