History & Background

Aullwood Garden displays a variety of plants and wildlife that harmonize with the surrounding 31-acre woodlands, donated by Marie Aull, who was a local inspiration and advocate for conservation. Marie, and her husband John, purchased about 250 plants for their home, inspired by Mrs. Aull’s travels abroad. Wiles Creek served as a landscape focus and the forest shade determined the selection of the plants. The Aull house and surrounding gardens are examples of arts and crafts architecture and gardening popularized in 1900-1930 America.
