Helen Gillespie Ferris (1853-1917) loved flowers as much as she was inspired by learning and cultivating lives. This garden was conceived on the 125th anniversary of the institution that she and her husband Woodbridge N. Ferris, founded to inspire educational opportunity. The garden honors the memory of Mrs. Ferris's achievements and her personal grace with a place that evokes her greatest private delights.
