Blooming in Rockford

WM School Garden.jpg

“Blooming in Rockford,” was a temporary exhibition at Midway Village Museum in 2018 that allowed visitors the opportunity to learn about the gardens in our Victorian Village, historic gardening tools, local seed companies, native plants to Illinois, as well as beekeeping.

Visitors were able to test their knowledge by determining if old gardening wives tales hold any truth to them, challenge themselves by identifying the Latin names of some common native plants, smell scent samples, or learn about some of Rockford’s very own seed companies.

The images in this Online Exhibit were pulled from our Exhibit Archives to highlight a sampling of the gardens in our Victorian Village and share the history behind them.
