In 2010, the Lewiston Binational Peace Garden was unveiled and designated. It was the culmination of hard work and efforts by both residents and dignitaries to celebrate 200 years of peace between the nations of the United States and Canada.
Parks and green space across our area have been developed to recognize and commemorate the War of 1812. There is so much history in this area that deserves not to be forgotten. The first major battle of the War of 1812 was fought here having half of the nation’s troops located in Lewiston.
In the post, Garden Town Tour, you may have noticed the red tulips all over town.
And you have seen much and here is one to make you smile.
And I made a mistake saying I would be at this park next week. Lucky, I was at the plant sale setup today and made mention that I am posting the Peace Garden today. Because….I would have shown up at the wrong park. Here is where I am supposed to be…. Hey, I am a new member, give me a year… I barely knew where to go for the plant sale setup!
