Basket in bloom

One of the 48 hanging flower baskets lining the streets around Lincoln Square.

For more than 55 years, members of the Gettysburg Garden Club have designed, planted and maintained the flower gardens in the circle of Lincoln Square. These plantings are funded entirely by the Garden Club through annual spring plant and Christmas greens sales and other projects. This has been and continues to be an important part of the Club’s mission.

In 2008, the club accepted responsibility for the 48 hanging flower baskets lining the streets, radiating from the first blocks around Lincoln Square and the eight planters situated on the Square’s corners. The Garden Club coordinates logistics and fundraising to bring this beautification project to downtown Gettysburg.
