Middlebury’s Krider World’s Fair Garden is one of the oldest botanical garden parks in Indiana and the oldest garden park to be found in a small town. Learn about the history of Krider Gardens. This book will introduce you to the special features of this small town garden park, and it will tell you the story of one of our nation’s first mail-order nurseries, Krider Nurseries, the people who worked in this business and the impact that this business and its garden had on the town of Middlebury.
