Remembering Jackson & Perkins Rose Company

Chris Davis, from the Newark-Arcadia Historical Society, presented a program of slides, photographs, and items about the Jackson & Perkins Rose Company, formerly located in Newark, NY. He discussed the beginnings of the company, and displayed slides of the parades and the gardens over the years. Later, Mr. Davis answered questions about his collection.  Carol Bailey, a former Rose Queen and longtime member of the Galen Historical Society, posed for pictures next to the collection.
