The Weeping Water Garden Club was organized in 1938 with the purpose "To create interest and make people more conscious of the great amount of natural beauty in the City of Weeping Water and the immediate surroundings." Besides the bi-monthly meetings, club activities included an annual flower show, trips to towns of other garden clubs to inspect their work, and a monthly tour of gardens during the growing season.
