In September, Durand-Hedden House & Garden Association Board Members were honored to host members of the Maplewood Committee for Servicemen and Servicewomen as they made a generous donation to the Association. The funds will be used to further Durand-Hedden's mission of making our shared local history exciting and relevant for people of all ages and backgrounds.
