Visit the ornamental gardens at Bethune Memorial House and explore the grounds of this Victorian era home built in 1880. Admire the garden from Parks Canada red chairs and marvel at the lush flower beds, containing  flowers popular in Gravenhurst in the 1890s such as geranium, peony, lilac, lavender and fern. Among these flowers you will find bloodroot and lungwort, deliberately planted to honour Norman Bethune and his work against tuberculosis, of which these plants were vital.
