The vintage two-story farmhouse sitting in the midst of the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens was actually built by Hulda’s parents in the late 1800’s. It was later sold to Hulda and her husband, Frank, for just one dollar. She continued to live in the house–sharing her passion for lilacs with family, friends, and neighbors–until her death in 1960. Hulda Klager was 97 years old.
