Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens

Woodland, WA 98674
Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens

Each year, thousands of visitors step back in time to discover the 1880’s Victorian Farmhouse and country gardens that comprise the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens.

To showcase the site, the Gardens and historic buildings have been lovingly maintained by the Hulda Klager Lilac Society, a nonprofit volunteer organization. The Society fully funds the care and upkeep of the historical site from the proceeds of Lilac Days, dues and donations. With the help of our volunteers and members, the Society continues to carry on the work of growing and showing the beautiful lilacs including those hybridized by Hulda Klager many decades ago.

April 20th to May 12th

History of Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens
Woodland is perhaps best known as the home of Hulda Klager (1863–1960), who was a prolific breeder of lilacs. The “Lilac Lady” Hulda Klager née Thiel, was long the pride of Woodland. She immigrated from Germany to Wisconsin in 1865, when she was just two years old, and came West when her family bought a farm in Woodland. Later she married and settled down on the family farm. When a friend gave her a book about Luther Burbank, she began creating flowers, hybridizing new varieties of roses, dahlias, even apples, and lilacs in particular. By 1920 she had created such a magnificent array of new hand-pollinated lilacs that she opened her garden on Lilac Week every spring for visitors. The floodwaters of 1948 rolled over her garden, destroying every shrub and hand-pollinated lilac. The loss grieved those who visited her garden or who had purchased her lilacs. From all over the Northwest, people sent starts of her lilacs from their own gardens. By 1950, at the age of eighty-seven, Klager, who loved flowers and who had been honored by the state of Washington as well as such organizations as the nationally famous arboretum at Cambridge, Massachusetts, again opened her home for Lilac Week. After her death in 1960, the Woodland Federated Garden Club, shocked that the garden might be bulldozed for industry, succeeded in raising money to buy it and have it declared a state and national historic site.

Columbia Theatre

Columbia Theatre

The historic Columbia Theatre opened as a vaudeville venue and movie house in 1925, declined during the mid-20th century and escaped what would have been a tragic ending in 1980 when excavation and demolition equipment heading toward the theater was diverted to help with the cleanup following the eruption of Mount St. Helens. Subsequently, a group of visionaries got together and saved the building. Today, the vibrant 1,000-seat theatre hosts nearly a dozen shows each year, ranging from musicals to comedy to children’s theatre.

We offer an array of red and white wines made from grapes grown in Washington State, each of which is sure to please the palette as well as the senses.

Our winemaker, Gary has been making wine for over 20 years, the first eight years in the Santa Clara Valley of California. About ten years ago Gary and his wife June moved back to southwest Washington where they grew up. Gary continued making wine here in Washington, travelling each year to eastern Washington to purchase grapes for his hobby. As time passed and the hobby grew into a passion Mount St. Helens Cellars erupted onto the landscape in the shadows of the mountain.

Crosscut Taproom
21 West Cowlitz Street
Castle Rock, Washington 98611

How it all began for the Crosscut Taproom…

Jen and Chris regularly walked their dogs, Dutch & Marley, on the trails in Castle Rock and always wished there was a small taphouse to go and enjoy up in North County. Finally one day they looked at each other after years of wishing “someone would open a taphouse” – and said let’s do it.
So now the process begins, permitting and getting everything up and running. Opening in May (Friday, Saturday, & Sundays). We want to bring friends together enjoying a regularly rotating assortment of fantastic pacific northwest craft brews with a limited food menu.
We look forward to serving you and being part of a great community!

The Crosscut Taproom is a small taproom with 12 draft handles featuring craft beer and cider with a limited food menu. For 21+
