The Elgin Better Gardens Club

1936_EBGC.jpg The Elgin Better Gardens Club began in 1925 with seven members. Over many years the group expanded, both in numbers, and in good works accomplished in the city of Elgin. The Club has supported beautification projects at Gail Borden Library, the Hemmens Plaza, and Fountain Square. Their collection of membership directories and activity reports was donated to Gail Borden Public Library. Items can be viewed at the Special Collections Room at GBPL, or online at Illinois Digital Archives. 70s_EBGC.jpg
