West Licking Historical Society’s Annual Scenic Garden Tour

July 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$12 – $15

Here is a brief overview of each stop on the tour.

  • Site 1 — 177 S. Main St. The garden of Bill and Suzy Voigt combines both old and new garden features, including a new hardscape patio and longstanding garden featuring lilacs, hostas and hydrangeas.
  • Site 2 — 193 S. Main St. The old Pataskala Jail. Built in 1892, the small building features two cells and 4-inch thick walls. The jail originally stood on the corner of Front Street and Poplar Street, but it was moved in 1978 to prevent its destruction. The jail stands on the National Register of Historic Places.
  • Site 3 — 300 S. Main St. The garden of The Mead-Needham Museum, which is owned and operated by a handful of the historical society’s members. The garden incorporates stones from the former Fountain School, which stood near Outville.
  • Site 3a — 398 S. Main St. The “secret” garden of Karen Henry features a large barn, old-growth trees, yard art, colorful flower beds, in addition to unique flora and fauna. The adjoining home was built in 1868, making it one of Pataskala’s original farm houses.
  • Site 4 — 9741 Palmer Road. The Etna Township home of Mitch and Peggy Schoffner, two avid gardeners, includes a host of outdoor features, including a patio, several flower beds, a collection of daylilies, multiple pieces of yard art and a barn with a covered porch.
  • Site 5 — 642 Chateaugay Drive. The Beechwood Trails garden of Dana and Gary Landrum features a collection of trees, including pine and deciduous trees, a stone pathway, water features, metal art, in addition to flowers, vegetables and herbs. A European Weeping Beech tree welcomes visitors to the property.
  • Site 6 — 27 Greenloch Court. One of the main features of the home/retreat, which is owned by Paula and Nick Hahn, is a circle drive with an island filled with boxwood pompom grasses encircling a garden fountain and executive putting green. A Koi pond stands behind the home, and a 12-foot bridge crosses a 500-foot babbling brook on the way to a gazebo overlooking a 5-acre pond.

Presale tickets are $12 per person, while day-of tickets are $15 per person. Tickets can be bought the day of the tour at Bremen Banking Center, Park National Bank and The Pataskala Banking Company. In addition, people can purchase tickets on the day of the tour at each site.
