Join author Robin R. Salmon as she recounts the history of Brookgreen Gardens located in through the lens of 200 vintage images.

Brookgreen Gardens evolved into the cultural attraction it is today from its beginning in 1930 as a winter home for philanthropist Archer Milton Huntington and his wife, sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington. The 9,000-acre tract had been four rice plantations as early as the 18th century. Home to rice planters, sportsmen, statesmen, industrialists, horticulturists, soldiers, novelists, artists, and poets, Brookgreen has entertained the great and the humble throughout its 300-year history. This book provides photographic glimpses of the men, women, and places connected with the land that became Brookgreen Gardens and documents Brookgreen's emergence as America's first public sculpture garden. A National Historic Landmark, Brookgreen's significance rests in its history and in its future service to visitors.
