the early 1980's, The Eureka Heritage Society maintained stewardship of the Wooden Sculpture Garden of
Romano Gabriel located on Second Street in Old Town Eureka.
On November 3rd, 2012, The Eureka Heritage Society officially presented the world-renowned Sculpture Garden to the Humboldt Arts Council in a ribbon-cutting ceremony arranged for the Arts Alive evening.
Mayor Frank Jager and two City Council members, Mike Newman and Marian Brady, joined EHS and
Humboldt Arts Council representatives, Sally Arnot and Jemima Harr, in presenting and receiving the gift.
A true Eureka treasure, the incredible Wooden Sculpture Garden of Romano Gabriel is preserved at 315 Second Street in Old Town Eureka. Under the loving care of the Eureka Heritage Society, this unique contribution to the world of folk art continues to delight visitors and residents alike. The links on the right are to several recent Times-Standard stories and articles on additional Eureka Heritage Society Website pages to cover the history of the garden, show some photos of the art, and describe current efforts to provide a "facelift" to the exhibit.
