After 70 years of operation, Petersen Rock Garden and Museum will close temporarily for repairs, renovations and improvements. 

 

Development Director Owen Evans says the landmark between Bend and Redmond is very unique with it's rock replicas of other historical landmarks and structures. 

 

Evans says the Garden is under consideration to be included in the National Register of Historical Places.  "The way it's described on the Historic Preservation league website is it is a roadside architecture, a geology significance. It talks about the effort of Rasmus Petersen, from the ground up, building this tourist attraction from local stone, from his own interest and how it's been significant for the last 70 years."

 

The four acre garden that features stone replicas of other historical landmarks, ponds, bridges and other structures should re-open on Memorial Day.
