Gnome Houses for the Garden


The Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is retiring 7 houses from its collection of unique, fine-crafted gnome and fairy houses. This is a first-time opportunity to acquire one of these sculptures for your own garden.

The "houses" have been exhibited during Friends of the Arboretum's annual Luminary Walk for the past 6 years and carefully stored between events. They have withstood both time and weather and will continue to do so with proper care and maintenance. The artists have refreshed and enhanced them yearly adding new details. Each is truly a work of art and will become a treasured feature of in your garden or outdoor living space.

The houses are a well-known part of local history and culture. Viewed by thousands of people, photos have been posted on the web and social media far and wide, 

Following purchase, a member of the Arboretum staff will contact you about pick up. If you have any questions, please email Katharine Garrison or call her weekdays at the Arboretum at 913.685.3604 during operating hours.
