The Rockingham County Botanical Garden was once a 10 acre garden located across the street from the Rockingham County Nursing Home, historically known as the Rockingham County Farm or Hospital. The University of New Hampshire's Cooperative Extension Master Gardener's program started the garden in 1996. The bad news is this garden was dismantled in December of 2011 due to funding and lack of participation by its volunteer members. The land has since been returned to the county.
The memorial bench pictured here was placed in honor of my father Arthur L. Baker Jr. of Windham, NH (1928-2005) who was an active member and one of the first men certified as a Master Gardener in the state. The bench is now in possession of the Baker family.
