Joseph E. Meyer Memorial Pavilion
The Joseph E. Meyer Memorial Pavilion, a gift from the Florence Melton family, was constructed in 2002. As the first structure built at Taltree the pavilion is a showcase of natural materials artfully blended into the landscape. Families use the pavilion to enjoy the Music in Nature Concert Series and other events. Brides and grooms exchange wedding vows in an atmosphere of beauty and serenity. School children enjoy picnic lunches in the pavilion after an energetic interpretive hike. The Joseph E. Meyer Memorial Pavilion and gardens are fast becoming the preferred place for special events in a memorable and magical setting. Call the office for more information.
