Step inside one of Decorah's most historic landmark businesses and you'll find a little bit of everything when it comes to flowers, gardening, landscaping and gift-giving. The 144-year-old business has been sold by former owners Jim and Linda Lukes (at right) to Deon Sawyer and her husband Issac Packnett (at left). The new owners recently moved to the area from Indiana.

The business, which was founded by the Symonds family of Decorah, has gone through only a few owners since those early years. To learn more about the early history of Decorah Greenhouses Inc., see the feature story published in the Nov. 19 Decorah Public Opinion.
