Paine Art Center & Gardens

The  Paine Art Center and Gardens is a historic estate with a  mansion and  gardens located in  Oshkosh Wisconsin. It includes public art galleries and  botanic gardens on 3 acres (1.2 ha), and is listed on the  National Register of Historic Places.

The Paine estate features twenty garden areas for public enjoyment and education. In concert with the historic architecture, the garden designs create outdoor "rooms" showcasing a wide variety of plants. Like the Paine mansion's rooms and galleries, the gardens are designed to create a variety of intimate and grand settings.

Set against the backdrop of the mansion, the gardens showcase perennials that are especially hardy in Wisconsin's climate as well as trees, shrubs and wildflowers native to the state. Displays of annuals and bulbs change each year and present new varieties and unusual combinations to inspire every level of garden enthusiast.

Volunteers from the Outagamie County Master Gardener Association spend many, many hours each season working in the gardens and escorting guests on tours through the lush landscape.
