Biographical or historical data
The North End Garden Club founded on June 22, 1928 in Indianapolis was one of the earliest gardening clubs in Central Indiana. The club's stated purpose was to "stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening". The founding sisters, Anna and Lou Hosea, were active members until their deaths. At the monthly meetings hosted in members' homes, the women gathered to hear a lecturer, discuss gardening, and share poems. The club was active in beautification projects at state hospitals, schools, and parks (most notably, the Indianapolis Zoo). Members also participated in district, state, and national competitions, gatherings, and trips. Due to a loss of members and inability of aging members to perform tasks, they moved to disband in 1985 and to become an informal social club.Source: Materials from the collection;Bodenhamer, David J., Robert G.
