About Barbara Gordon

Barbara Gordon is a lead restoration leader for the Rengstorff House garden and has contributed thousands of volunteer hours to serve as a consultant for the planning and care of its plant life, especially the roses. As an expert rosarian, Barbara helped select the thornless climbing roses for the landmark home's two pergolas to match historical Rengstorff family photography of the original garden. (The house has been moved twice since the family left it).

Barbara has also contributed hundreds of floral creations for the beautification of the home's interiors and the delight of museum visitors, as well as led multiple workshops of her own.
