Formal Gardens Restoration
In an era where most inhabitants in the Ohio Valley lived in log cabins, the Blennerhassetts built their famous abode and maintained an elaborate "pleasure garden" that covered 2 ⅓ acres adjacent to the mansion. You can help the Foundation restore these gardens and further enhance the experience of thousands of visitors who travel to the island each year. Please donate below through PACF to support this endeavor.
The Blennerhassett Historical Foundation preserves and promotes the history of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and the surrounding Mid-Ohio River region and also encourages support and participation in the Blennerhassett Island State Historical Park. The Foundation provides funds, volunteers and other resources to support the Park’s museum, operations, activities and facilities.
