Middlesboro's Arthur Museum and Garden

The Arthur Museum, Middlesboro, Bell County
Named after Scottish businessman and Middlesboro founder, Alexander A. Arthur

The Victorian Garden at the Arthur Museum was beautifully designed by local gardeners.  Garden beds are lined with memorial bricks donated by local families and businesses.

Many trees and shrubs were also donated to the garden in memory of Middlesboro families and individuals.  This tree was planted in memory of Middlesboro founder Alexander A. Arthur and family.

Donated in memory of Hobart and Darlis Lynch by Kyle and Stephanie Lynch

Surrounding the American flag are memorials to three great community leaders and veterans:  Dr. Fred Weller, Mayor Troy "Frog" Welch, and Mr. Dave Rogan.

This beautiful magnolia decorates one corner of the garden and was planted in memory of Joe and Charlcie Collins by their children, Tess, Jess,  Mark, and Cindy
