Visitors to the Plantation House Museum came from •10 states other than Texas; they registered from in foreign countries such as Hungary, Japan, Spain, England. Klhlo- pla, Dra7.ll, Trance, Canada, Argentina, Germany, Puerto IJIco, Sweden, Australia. Surinam, and Panama. Reservations for school groups to lour the museum were made for many students from schools In neighboring and distant cities over the state. Among these were youngsters from Pearland Elementary, Pearland; A. I 1 . Duetel Elementary, Lake Jackson; Calallen Junior High School In Corpus Christ!; Tldehavvn High School: Jane Long Elementary In Richmond; Dulles Junior High, Stafford; Jane Long I-Jleinentary. Freejxirl; Stewart Elementary, Kemah; Our Lady ol Katlma School, Texas ntv; the Joint •I-II rlnb froiti Port Lavaca, and the Glh grade .students Iron) Van Vlock School. In addition to these, there wore three groups fro;n the Spring Branch Independent School District who toured the museum in June as part of their Summer Enrichment Program. These st ud -,>nt s spend about six weeks each summer louring various historical points ol interest over the State of Texas. Many garden clubs make a pilgrimage to the park each year tor a tour of the museum as v.oll as the ('.rounds. Among those visiting the park this year were members of the Chapul Bell and Purple Sage Garden Clubs in Houston, and the Pin Oak Garden Club of Bellalre, Buildings and grounds maintenance Is a task which Is end less in a park of this nature. Much of the work Is carried out on a routine basis and certain phases of It are on a seasonal basis. Most of the pruning of the trees and crape myrtles is done during the dormant season or when the need arises. Flower beds, blooming shrubs, crape myrtle hedges, lawns and the 30 magnolia trees In the grounds are fertilized periodically during the early spring and summer, Spraying to control pests and weeds Is done very carefully. Trees, such as pear and pecan, have been replanted In the grounds to supplement those already planted or to replace some that have died. In addition to several minor repairs made to the Plantation House, a new floor was laid in the dining room In March. Additional window units have been added to the museum to control moisture and protect the furnishings which were deeded to the State by Miss Ima Hogg last year. Extensive repairs have been made to the Interior of th« Park Attendant's residence across the creek* Ntofe re* pairs and interior decorating of the museum are planned as budgeted funds become available. Varner-Hogg State Park has not been overlooked In the plans for park Improvements over the state In the years ahead, and it Is Inevitable that park attendance will Increase in all the state parks as additional facll Hies are made available to the motoring public.
