The Woodman Museum, 182 Central Avenue, Dover, NH, has been in existence since 1916. It’s four buildings are home to hundreds of artifacts from the colonial era.
In October of 2012, a group of volunteers gathered at the Woodman Museum to install a rain garden on the campus of the museum.
The garden provides visitors to the museum and passerbys an opportunity to view a garden that manages almost all of the runoff from the rear of the Woodman House rather than it running into the basement or down the street to the city catch basins.
This effort was funded in part by a grant from the EPA and Soak NH.
Recently signage was installed using funds provided by the Strafford County Master Gardeners that explains how a rain garden works.
Thank you Strafford County Master Gardeners, Joyce Design Studios, and UNH Cooperative Extension for your part in the development of this signage.
