Rose Garden


In 1989, the Westervelt family donated the services of their company (Blueville Nursery) to install walkways for a garden area tucked back in a secluded location east of the Conservatory. The construction of this garden was the first in the new KSU Gardens. Due to the sponsorship of Albert H. and Clare (Russell) Ottaway '28 in 1991, this secluded garden was developed into the new Rose Garden. Today, as part of its educational purpose, examples of different types of roses can be observed in a beautiful collection of over 300 rose plants.
