In September 2013, we took a tour to explore the world of Sam & Jean Bibler. From the beautiful gardens to the 19th-century Persian rugs to the extensive collection of Inuit prints and soapstone carvings, we all came away with a sense of wonder. It's impressive how one family, who were such good stewards of their resources, made and are making such an impact in the community.
About Bibler Gardens:
Bibler Gardens is a private display garden designed by Louis A. "Sam" Bibler. Sam landscaped, planted, and maintained the gardens at his home from around 1980 until his death in 2002. The extensive gardens, including ponds, waterfalls, sculptures, arboretum, and a log stable with a menagerie of miniature animals, are maintained today according to Sam's desire to preserve the site as a place of lasting beauty that could be enjoyed by the local community and visitors to the area. The Bibler home and its furnishings have also been preserved. The beautifully designed home features 18th and 19th-century art and furnishings, as well as an outstanding Persian antique tribal rug collection completed in 2011, and an important collection of Cape Dorset Inuit sculpture and prints.
