Sparta Historical Society welcomes everyone to enjoy the first day of summer at Van Kirk Homestead Museum's grounds. Stroll leisurely as Master Gardeners discuss and highlight the sights and sounds of our certified butterfly garden, as well as, our vibrant Community Garden plots. Enjoy a glass of lemonade and summer treats on the house patio! We also encourage our guests to begin the event with our short Nature Walk guide. This event is totally weather dependent - there is no rain date.
