The Moore House Garden is an adaptation of the Custis-Maupin Garden built in 1733 in Williamsburg, VA. The brick-lined partiers are planted with spring-blooming bulbs, summer annuals, and perennial plants proven by trial and error to grow well in Manhattan, Kansas. The Moore House Garden has been featured in the Riley County Master Gardeners Home Tour three times.
