The Gardens of Roscoe Village

Mrs. Montgomery in the Historic Roscoe Village Gardens OhioThe flower beds of Roscoe Village were created in the early 1970’s out of Frances Montgomery’s love for gardening. Today the beauty of Roscoe Village is showcased with pocket gardens throughout the village.

Having been started from transplants from Mrs. Montgomery’s Hill Street home, the gardens of Roscoe Village represent the dreams and hard work of Frances Montgomery. Mrs. Montgomery could be found in Roscoe Village daily until just a few months before her death in July 1989.  

Enjoy a trip to Historic Roscoe Village and stroll through the beautiful gardens planted throughout this restored 1800's canal town.
