No. 5 On the Map:
Robert C. Morton Border
Between the equestrian statue of George Washington and the entrance to the amphitheater, two benches in memory of Robert C. Morton sit adjacent to Pilgrim Road. The benches face the Bishop’s Garden and south side of the Cathedral beyond.
The Robert C. Morton border was installed in 1985 with the planting of native shrubs and trees including redbud, viburnum, shadblow, fothergilla and hydrangea. Mrs. Morton was president of All Hallows Guild from 1980 to 1982.
Walk west from the Morton Border along Pilgrim Road. Directly across from the Pilgrim Road crosswalk is the entrance to the All Hallows Amphitheater.
