Elaine’s Garden- To the left of Harigle Garage, you will notice a green space with the outline of a brick framed structure and overhang porch above. Originally part of Ottie Harigle’s garage, the structure was built soon after the Great Fire of 1907 and was constructed by Shawnee resident John Condon in 1908. The building was a restaurant before Ottie Harigle purchased it and expanded it to a garage and candy store. With the help of an Americorps NCCC team, Elaine’s Garden became a reality in 2005. Created in memory of Shawnee Resident Elanie Shiplett, the garden was dedicated in her memory, as Shiplett played an important role at the Southern Perry County Youth Arts Center (SPiCYAM), located atop the Harigle Garage.
