Hat N' Boots

As connected with the GeorgeTown Garden tour this year, the Hat N' Boots Historic Landmark is now completed, after many years of community effort and money. It has been restored. Come down and take a look.

Hat N' Boots

We had a successful event, building awareness of the amazing Hat N' Boots. Lots of press coverage, a radio interview and many folks stopping by, even donating money. Had a nice BBQ also. The flowers remained on the Hat for several weeks and looked simply gorgeous...a great big colorful Arbor. A lot of work by many volunteers but well worth it. Stop by any time. We hope for more funding and full restoration in the future.
