A Map of North Carolina for Nature Lovers

In 1937 the Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. commissioned Mabel Pugh, Art Instructor at Peace College in Raleigh to design a map depicting major areas of the state and featuring the birds and flora of the state. Thus “A Map of North Carolina for Nature Lovers” was created.

In 2001 the Standing Committee for the Martha Franck Fragrance Garden, located at the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, requested permission to offer reprints of this map to assist in funding the initial installation of this third garden endorsed by the state organization. These were sold primarily to garden club members throughout the state. In 2005 Trustees of the Garden Club of North Carolina, under President Dr. Rusty Van Pelt, granted permission to Jane McPhaul, Inc. to print a smaller edition of the map.

The 2014 ‘green’ edition is 24.5” x 14.5”, 65#, 10% recycled, acid free paper. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Franck Garden to continue the development of Phase Three of the Master Plan, known as the Children’s Plaza. The final design to be installed in this section is the North Carolina Garden, featuring: tactile symbols of the State; the Great Seal; the flag; a land map of the State; and the “Toast to North Carolina”

The map's price is $30. Contact Jane McPhaul for details on payment and shipping. jhmcphaul@nc.rr.com, Jane McPhaul, Inc.
