This week we journey to Falmouth for our Hidden Freebie, to a magical place called Spohr Gardens! Lately I have steered ALOT of Cape Cod Moms to this fabulous spot as a free fun way to kill time! But first a brief history..... Margaret and Charles D. Spohr began creating this wondrous setting around their home, located on the back of Oyster Pond, in the 1950s. As the legend of the gardens' uniqueness and beauty grew, they generously welcomed the ever-growing number of visitors. After Charles Spohr died in 1997 and Margaret Spohr in 2001, the gardens were left to the Margaret K. Spohr and Charles D. Spohr Charitable Trust. Under the terms of the trust the property is to be open to the public every day of the year from 8am to 8pm. No admission may be charged but tax deductible donations are accepted.
