Virginia's Garden
The interactive garden, developed for children, was designed in 2002 by two staff members from Northern California. "A space that fosters a natural occurring educational process within the ever-curious child” - no better words described the child-like Virginia Stranahan, of whom this garden is in memory. Smile and watch as children wind their way through the tunnel, play in the sand, float a stick down the stream bed, dance on the stage, climb up into the tree house, harvest vegetables grown by children in the raised beds, and experience other discoveries.

The 577 Foundation House
In 1935, Duane and Virginia Stranahan built this magnificent home and raised their family here. The gift of the home in 1997 enabled The 577 Foundation to open doors for non-profit organizations to have day-long and multiple day conferences in this wonderful residential setting. More detailed information on the use of this home is available.
