About the Frank Skinner Arboretum

The nursery shut down some time ago. Hugh Skinner still lives on the property and in recent years has been working at converting it into an arboretum. A little south of Roblin, plant fanatics can wander the paths and view some of Skinner's prairie-friendly creations. While it's free to wander the arboretum, donations are appreciated to help preserve this bit of botanical history.
