Doors to the Cabinet . . .

We are excited to show off the doors that were made for the display cabinets located in the entry way of the D.D. Collins house . . . A view of our new cabinet doors. Another view of our new cabinet doors. We look forward to filling the cabinets with the smalls that have been collected to tell the story of the house and our local community.

What a gorgeous view of Collins Park. Pink cone flowers and yellow lilies make it cherry and welcoming. We also appreciate the work that Parks Department grounds keepers are doing to keep everything looking sharp and manicured. Hostas and Black-eyed Susans decorate the well along the brick path. You can almost hear the clippity-clop of horse hooves hitting the brick path as they pull carriages in 1840s Collinsville. The garden flourishes. Hope you enjoyed our drive-by visit.

We surely appreciate all the work that Sarah and other members of the Collinsville Garden Club have always done, and especially now during the COVID19 pandemic. Landscaping looks great even in July heat. Flowers in bloom, mulch in place, a perfect scene. Sarah and Boy Scout troop 1093 along with their leader braved the heat on Wednesday the 29th to spread the mulch. Hard work pays off, simply beautiful. It looks great!
