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
We have Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata) planted on tall trellises on the north and south sides of the building. These woody, climbing vines grow fullest on the south side of the building due to the full sun they receive most of the day. Untrained, the vines can climb to heights near 50 feet. Crossvine is a colorful addition to the landscape, with green leaves in summer that turn reddish purple in winter. The trumpet shaped flowers, which bloom best in full sun, are an orange-red and attract hummingbirds. Deer will eat the leaves in winter.
