The Wrights met and married in 1924 and spent 30 years cultivating iris on their Spahr Rd. farm. Sue was a teacher in the Bellbrook-Sugarcreek School system for many years. Horace was a hybridizer of iris. He specialized in rebloomers, which bloom both spring and fall. Dedicated in 1996 & renovated in 2009, the garden is circular in design and bordered by local creek stone. A large rock from the Bumgardner House, constructed 1842, is the focal point. Peonies from the garden of Horace's parents, Ivonette and Lorin Wright, and some of their favorite daylilies are included in this garden.

The iris in this garden were a gift from Mrs. Sue Wright, a lifetime Bellbrook Garden Club member. They were given in memory of her husband, Horace Wright, who was a nephew of Orville & Wilber Wright. One variety, "The Wright Flyer", was named in honor of their historical first flight.
