Kudos to Jeannie and Art Rivkin for the wonderful rose garden planted in front of their property at 836 Prospect St. The English Tudor building, which houses a number of businesses, was built by John and Henry Morgan in 1919 for Sarah Beckwith after she moved here from Illinois, Jeannie Rivkin said last week.

After they purchased it, they moved the sidewalk to the center of the property to accommodate tenants. She said she and her husband are “rose fanciers” and are planning to add even more bushes. She praised their gardener for his hard work in keeping the garden looking so beautiful. One time, she said, they hosted a wedding and when friends have special occasions, they will pick roses for them.
