Avon Lake Bicentennial Garden Dedication Sunday, June 27th

06/23/2021 – The Avon Lake Historical Society, Avon-on-the-Lake Garden Club, and the City of Avon Lake collaborated to conceive, design, and build a serene pocket garden behind the Peter Miller House Museum in Miller Road Park to commemorate the Avon Lake Bicentennial.

This collaborative project has been over a year in the making. It includes native plants, a wheelchair accessible path, and dedication plaques on granite boulders sourced from the region. The dedication will also include the burying of a time capsule.

The time capsule contains various items collected or produced during the Avon Lake Bicentennial celebratory events. Additionally, notes from students to the future generations of Avon Lake are included.

The remarks will start at 1:00pm with refreshments served afterwards. This event is open to the public.
