An introduction to Milne House Garden Club Milne House Garden Club was founded April 11, 1967, and was named to perpetuate the historical association of the Edwards Gardens area with Alexander Milne, the original owner of the property which was part of a five hundred acre Crown Land Grant given in the early 1800's.
The Milne House, built on the brow of the hill close to Lawrence Avenue, was destroyed by fire in 1964, and has been replaced by a tea house erected on the old foundation.
The Milne House Garden Club members are happy to announce that we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary on Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 at the Donalda Club. A little more history following that found at the top of this page....
The Milne House Rose
A pink rose has become the symbol of the Milne House Garden Club.
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary in 1987, a miniature pink rose was hybridized by Keith Laver of Springwood Consultants, R.R. No. 3, Caledon East.
The rose has been named the Alexander Milne.
