Spring Tea in the Mary Palmer Garden, Farmington State Normal School, 1930

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF

The Mary Palmer Garden, located behind the Home Economics Cottage at the Farmington State Normal School, served as the setting of many Home Economics Department social functions, including teas, luncheons, and Home Economics graduation ceremonies.

The garden was planned by the Home Ec Club in 1927 and the Club and the Home Ec alumni contributed to its construction and the addition of the original entrance arbor (replaced in 2012), sign and a bird bath.
