The History Center uses exhibits, both on-site and on-line, to showcase some of our vast collections of documents and photographs.
Native Plants at The History Center
Dam B Wisteria
Our native wisteria (Wisteria frutescens, "Amethyst Falls"), vines give a fragrant and colorful show each April, on the pergola at our front entrance. The high climbing, woody vines show off their 6-9 inch clusters of flowers, which grow on new wood after the plant leafs out. Native wisteria is less aggressive than the foreign varieties and is very trainable. It attracts butterflies and is used as a nectar source and as a larval host. Residential landscapers might find their deer resistance useful.
