About Us:

The Wallis Arboretum is considered one of the finest old tree collections in Central Kentucky. The Wallis Arboretum provides an educational facility and environment where all may find beauty and a better understanding of the world around us. The first trees were planted in the mid-1850's at a time when having the newest tree introduction was a status symbol. The majority of the planting was under the direction of Nannine Clay Wallis for whom the Arboretum was named. Mrs. Wallis was one of the founders of The Garden Club of Kentucky. Later, she was its president as well as that of The National Council of State Garden Clubs.

Under the direction of The Garden Club of Kentucky, Inc. and The Wallis Arboretum, the tradition continues today with the planting of the newest varieties and preserving the old.
