The Museum of Durham History is partnering with local organizations to establish small groves of native trees and plants to honor individuals, families and others who played significant roles in creating our unique community. Each grove contains seating where visitors can pause and reflect, and every site has a durable marker naming the honoree. 

The Museum helps facilitate establishment of the groves, with the sponsoring organization or neighborhood group taking the lead on funding, honoree selection, planting and maintenance. The Museum can provide partial funding for History Grove projects, and an informal “coach” from the Museum’s History Advisory Committee can be available for consultation.
