Built in the Queen Anne style, the Elizabeth Merrill Child Garden, was originally described as “a building
designed for a kindergarten.” Given by a Mrs. Hansell to the teacher, Elisabeth “Bessie” Merrill, the structure
served as a kindergarten or school until it became a home in 1950. During its history, it has had three
locations. It was moved on pine rollers or logs in the early 1900’s from its original location at the intersection
of Jackson and Dawson Streets to the intersection of Washington and Dawson Streets. The cottage was moved
again in 1993 to its current location behind the Royal-Miller House.
