As you can see from the pictures below, the garden is just starting to bloom into its full glory. A lot of hard work has been put in by the members of the deWitt Cottage Garden Club. The gardens have been cleaned up, expanded, and had new plants added. If you have any desire to garden, please consider joining the deWitt Cottage Garden Club. It is an opportunity to learn how to garden in a hostile, saltwater environment from Master Gardeners.
Shore Gallery at deWitt Cottage has taken up residency in the AWHM. Their presence, vision, updates, and enhanced merchandise will greatly add to our beloved museum and will complement our “flavor” well. Kathy and Sean Rooney have a proven record of accomplishment in the Hampton Roads area and we are excited to enter into this new chapter with them. I would be remorse if I did not take an opportunity to thank Mrs. Ann Smith for years of service, dedication, and love for the AWHM. In addition to her service as our old gift shop manager, Ann was a staple at special events, fundraisers, and as a welcoming face at the front for visitors and locals alike.
Thank you to all of our friends, family and fans that voted for us across so many categories in the 2019 Coastal Virginia Magazine Best of Readers' Choice Awards!
