The Herb Garden
The herb garden at the Fort Scott National Historic Site behind Officer's Row. Herbs played an important part in the life of the Officer's wives. The garden would provide herbs to be used medicinally, aromatically and culinary. Although the main purpose would be for medicinal use.
And those wives would tend the garden themselves.
