Martha Franck Fragrance Garden

This unique 1.1-acre garden is on the campus of the Governor Morehead School for the Blind, 301 Ashe Avenue in Raleigh. The Martha Franck Fragrance Garden has been a cooperative project between the school and The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. since 1960. It is used as an outdoor classroom that allows visually impaired students and those with multiple physical challenges to experience scent, sound, and touch. Signage and labeling throughout the garden are done in Braille or raised letters.

In 1997 The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. designated the Martha Franck Garden as its official South Atlantic Region Unified State Project.

Because the garden is located on the grounds of the Morehead School for the Blind, garden visitors must stop by the office for a visitor’s pass.
