For over 30 years, the Fred Heutte Center - at the intersection of Westover Avenue and Botetourt Gardens in the historic Ghent community of Norfolk, Virginia - has been the focal point of the Friends of Fred Heutte Foundation whose members work to continue Mr. Heutte's wish to enrich our community by sharing his ideals of urban beautification through horticultural education.
