Jane Burdette's eternal inspiration, optimism, and ability to foster collaboration are honored through the Jane C. Burdette & Valentine Family Memorial Art of Peace Garden. Displayed within a triangular design, heirloom plants for the Valentine's gardens are focal points. Placed between Valentown Hall, built by Jane's Great-Grand-father, Levin Valentine in 1879 and an old majestic oak (dated 1735); the garden celebrates the history of the Valentine family and continues the original intention of the hall; a community meeting place. Maintained by the Valentown Garden Club, the garden offers a peaceful and historic space to enjoy art, nature or attend cultural programs.

The Jane C. Burdette & Valentine Family Memorial Peace Garden celebrates and continues the 200 years of peace and longstanding friendship between two countries that share the world's undefended border. Soldiers from the War of 1812 camped on the grounds on which Valentown Hall now stands. Nourishment and much needed provisions were provided to these soldiers by "Grandma Town(s)", Levi Valentine's grandmother. The hall and garden are located in Victor New York. Victor,
