Longwood Gardens: Hidden History: Looking Beyond the Landscape (4 CEUs)

Join Longwood Arborist Scott Wade and renowned local artist Adrian Martinez on a tour of the hidden history of the region and the role prior land use has in shaping the contemporary character of three historic locations. At Hopewell Furnace National Park, get a glimpse into the early iron plantations that helped build our country’s industrial prowess and hike through the adjacent landscape. Historic Yellow Springs, the second stop, has a rich history dating back over 300 years, from its development as one of the country’s first spas to its time as a film studio where more than 400 films including The Blob were made. Learn about its current use as a bustling artisan community. End your journey at Bondsville Mill Park, where remnants of the woolen mill that produced uniforms for Union soldiers during the Civil War and linings for Air Force jackets during WWII inform the landscape that is being transitioned into a community event space.
