Alwerdts Gardens 

A botanical treasure house and outdoor gallery, Alwerdts Gardens and Alwerdt Artworks and Sculpture Park are one of Effingham’s hidden gems. Located just one mile south off of Interstate 70, Exit 82, the business and park cover several acres of land with their display gardens and half-mile sculpture walk. The grounds are truly a labor of love, courtesy of this month’s #MadeinEffingham maker, Nik Alwerdt.
