Your donation to our Foundation supports education, public programming, habitat preservation, and general operations of the facilities & gardens. Because of donations like yours, we can pass on our history, heritage, and provide an enduring legacy. Generous annual gifts like yours also provide unique places for visitors to explore early living history and the natural wonders of the Ozarks.
We rely on every gift of every size to meet our budget every year, and we need your gift today. Please help us continue to be able to provide a living legacy and natural beauty to our community of Northwest Arkansas.
The Peel Mansion and Compton Gardens...
belong to all those who call Northwest Arkansas home. Through the forward-thinking and vision displayed by the original board of the Peel House Foundation, now known as The Peel Compton Foundation, the public is able to enjoy:
- Free use of the Compton Gardens Trail System
- Guided tours of the native Ozark habitat being preserved (donations welcomed)
- Trained guides to explain the history of The Peel Mansion Museum & Heritage Gardens and its occupants
- Children’s Butterfly Garden – free access to The Peel Mansion grounds
- Community involvement and training as a volunteer
Two historic landmarks, one mission.
Lodged within our collective memory mark the former homes of two of our most recognized citizens: noted attorney, Indian agent and Congressman, Colonel Samuel Peel; and leading physician, author, and conservationist, Dr. Neil Compton.

The Peel Compton Foundation is always honored when a family member chooses to memorialize a relative through a donation in that relative’s name. It is the policy to acknowledge both the donor’s gift and inform the family of this donation. The Peel Compton Foundation uses memorials and gifts honoring living achievements in the unrestricted fund for garden improvements. Gifts for either use can be made on line.
Whenever possible, we try to recognize those honored through memorial gifts. Please notify our office if you decide to honor a loved one in this manner. We would appreciate a brief obituary that lists details of the person’s life for our website.
