$$20.00
Open House: June 13, 2015. 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

 

Eastside Garden Tour

“Thundering torrents of water, ice, and earth roared across the Northwest, carving new canyons, sculpting monstrous waterfalls, instantly transforming the face of the land. Then, almost as suddenly as they had come, the floods were gone”….leaving behind the deep, rich soils in which we peacefully plant our gardens. (Ice Age Floods Institute, www.iafi.org

Come explore the rain-blessed river communities of the West Columbia Gorge as you stroll from one garden, pass inspiring natural views to the next gardener’s pride. Leave the hectic pace of the surrounding world and enter into the lush landscapes near the Historic Columbia River Highway, once known as “The King of the Roads.”

 

We welcome you to our community and invite you to experience our exceptional quality of life! Gardens open 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on June 13, 2015. Tickets for this self-guided tour are $20 and children under 13 are free. Proceeds will benefit Crown Point Historical Society. The mission of the Society is to preserve and share the history that includes of the western end and surrounding area of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Plans are underway for a 3,500 square foot museum building to house and share the archives and collections. Tools, boats and large machinery used in fishing, farming and logging will be on display on the 2.69 acre museum grounds.

 

We are in the process of updating garden photos and descriptions so visit again soon!!

 

Garden Descriptions

Fortune’s Garden- “The Country Classic”

Gresham, Oregon 97080

An example of a classic country garden, the lovely shade garden wrapping around the front of the house, centers on an inviting gazebo. The one acre backyard directly behind the home is perhaps the sunniest part of the property with an expanse of lawn surrounded by a mixed border of perennials and shrubs. Continuing beyond, is Kathleen’s favorite part of her garden, another shade garden with a meandering path that leads the wanderer though a grove of mature Douglas-fir trees. At the end of the path is yet another garden filled with trees and shrubs. This is where Kathleen can always find room for just one more, irresistible plant.

 

 

Hutson Garden - “The Art of Texture, Color and Design”

Corbett, Oregon 97019

No photos, please

Beautifully designed by Elaine Hutson, this 37 year-old-garden was once a grassy field. Years in the making, her garden is now a living showcase of her business, Landscapes in Living Color. Both the English style garden that surrounds her home and the woodland garden beyond are designed for year round interest. Her artistic use of plant form, color and texture weaves their way throughout the gardens.

A 36-foot by 10-foot conservatory provides a home for tropical plants, allowing the zone 6 climate to grow zone 9 plants. Bird of Paradise, oleander, tree fern, and lemon datura are just a few of the specimens that thrive and survive in this unheated space.

 Shelman Garden - “The Art Four-Season Landscape”

Corbett, Oregon 97019

This one-acre garden originated in the mid-1950’s on the grounds of the 1923 Hurlburt School. Based on an English motif, today it boasts an 80-foot-long perennial border, a large woodland garden with a meandering path, mature rhododendrons and dozens of ornamental trees and shrubs. This beautiful four-season garden also contains fruit trees, five varieties of berries, as well as grapes, vegetables and herbs. You will see a garden house, an Artist Studio and an arbor that supports a hardy kiwi vine.
