Bertha Palmer:  Entrepreneur, cattle rancher, railroad magnate, and gardener!!

Join us for a history of Historic Spanish Point, a virtual tour of the garden features recreated from Bertha Palmer’s estate, The Oaks, which was located just to the north.  

Our guide is John McCarthy, who says of Palmer, “Gardening was her love; she was quoted in the Chicago papers as having discovered her true passion in life when she arrived in Osprey.”

John will be joined by Selby Gardens President and CEO Jennifer O. Rominiecki.
