Historical Information

On 9 Mar 1923 seventeen women met at the home of Mrs. John Moore (n.d.) and decided to establish the Aldie Horticultural Society. Mrs. Floyd (Eleanor Truax) Harris (1868-1937), was elected president, and the group agreed to meet monthly. Records show that the group has met on a regular basis to hear presentations on topics of interest to gardeners, to undertake projects to beautify various sites in Aldie, to visit gardens of interest, and to sponsor shows of several varieties of plants, including a yearly daffodil show for members of the society. Mrs. Harris developed the Stoke Daffodil, named for her home, Stoke.

The organization, which is not associated with Garden Clubs of Virginia, meets on a regular basis. Ongoing civic activities include sending two Aldie children to nature camp each year, and decorating the town of Aldie, VA for Christmas. A long term project has been to send money for treats to a senior citizens' home in Manassas, VA for the Fourth of July.
