XENIA — Volunteers from The Home Depot and National Church Residences spent Thursday creating the Legacy Village Memorial Garden.
Located where a hospital building stood on the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Orphans’ Home campus, the garden will include a gazebo, cement pavers and pads, flowers, bushes and a regulation size croquet field. The garden will also include artifacts from the hospital’s roof.
Home Depot in Washington Court House donated dirt, grass seed, cement pavers and pads and flowers and bushes and employees from the store’s district 314, which includes western Columbus and some of the Dayton-area, volunteered to do the work on their day off.
Residents of the assisted living and retirement communities on the Legacy Campus gave their input on what they wanted the garden to look like, according to project organizers.
