The Calvin Jones House Gardens

The gardens surrounding the south side of the Calvin Jones House are beautiful every season of the year, but never more so than late spring when the colorful hues of blooming salvia, daisies, phlox, and catmint blend to create the perfect perennial border for a traditional country home.

Daylilies add a splash of yellow to the cooler perennials lining the brick walk leading to the front steps of the Calvin Jones House and across the north side of the lawn.

It’s all the work of Hugh Nourse, a Master Gardener and volunteer groundskeeper, who has diligently preserved the beauty and integrity of the historic property’s natural landscape.

From the April 1961 Wake Forest phone book... instructions on how to use a dial telephone, how to dial a number, how to interpret ringing and busy signals, and what to do on a party line. Anyone else remember those days? This amazing photo from Sanford Bailey shows just HALF of the folks at the 1954 Powell Family Reunion!!! Brought out the programs to get moving on the 2017 WF Community Christmas Dinner... it's never too early to start!!!🎄 An early morning visitor to the museum garden.
