The historical areas from lower Colfax to Applegate are featured in this year’s Colfax Garden Club Garden and Art Tour.
There will be six wonderful gardens on the tour including a small meticulous garden; a spreading park-like estate; a hunting lodge and garden built in 1919 which was the original Heather Glen; former pheasant farms developed into delightful gardens and a lavender farm.
