The Brewer-Harris Garden

On October 12, 2014, the Brewer-Harris Garden was dedicated at the annual meeting of the Wake Forest College Birthplace Society. This peaceful patio venue on the north side of the museum grounds is designed to accentuate the natural beauty of the outdoors.

With the historic Old Well as its focal point, the garden was made possible by a generous gift from Wake Forest native Larry Harris and is named in memory of his brother, Ricky Harris, and their cousin Jenny Brewer.

The Wake Weekly Associate Editor David Leone contributed this published article on the dedication. The page images can be selected to full screen size for easier reading.
