The driving force of our mission is to continue the gardening legacies of Mrs. Louise Bibb Wharton and
Mrs. Eloise Gregory.
In 1995, the Wharton Memorial Foundation was formed to address the deteriorating condition of the Wharton and Gregory Gardens and
the John Wharton Cottage.
The work of this organization would not be possible without the help of our dedicated volunteers!
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site. The Wharton Garden is located at 309 N. Bridge Street in Bedford, Virginia between the Bower Center for the Arts and the Bedford Public Library.
