About this item

<p><i>Seeking Eden</i> promotes an awareness of, and appreciation for, Georgia’s rich garden heritage. Updated and expanded here are the stories of nearly thirty designed landscapes first identified in the early twentieth-century publication <i>Garden History of Georgia, 1733–1933</i>. <i>Seeking Eden</i> records each garden’s evolution and history as well as each garden’s current early twenty-first-century appearance, as beautifully documented in photographs. Dating from the mid-eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries, these publicly and privately owned gardens include nineteenth-century parterres, Colonial Revival gardens, Country Place–era landscapes, rock gardens, historic town squares, college campuses, and an urban conservation garden.</p><p><i>Seeking Eden</i> explores the significant impact of the women who envisioned and nurtured many of these special places; the role of professional designers, including J. Neel Reid, Philip Trammel Shutze, William C. Pauley, Robert B. Cridland, the Olmsted Brothers, Hubert Bond Owens, and Clermont Lee; and the influence of the garden club movement in Georgia in the early twentieth century.</p><p><b>FEATURED GARDENS:</b><br>Andrew Low House and Garden | Savannah<br>Ashland Farm | Flintstone<br>Barnsley Gardens | Adairsville<br>Barrington Hall and Bulloch Hall | Roswell<br>Battersby-Hartridge Garden | Savannah<br>Beech Haven | Athens<br>Berry College: Oak Hill and House o’ Dreams | Mount Berry<br>Bradley Olmsted Garden | Columbus<br>Cator Woolford Gardens | Atlanta<br>Coffin-Reynolds Mansion | Sapelo Island<br>Dunaway Gardens | Newnan vicinity<br>Governor’s Mansion | Atlanta<br>Hills and Dales Estate | LaGrange<br>Lullwater Conservation Garden | Atlanta<br>Millpond Plantation | Thomasville vicinity<br>Oakton | Marietta<br>Rock City Gardens | Lookout Mountain<br>Salubrity Hall | Augusta<br>Savannah Squares | Savannah<br>Stephenson-Adams-Land Garden | Atlanta<br>Swan House | Atlanta<br>University of Georgia: North Campus, the President’s House and Garden, and the Founders Memorial Garden | Athens<br>Valley View | Cartersville vicinity<br>Wormsloe and Wormsloe State Historic Site | Savannah vicinity<br>Zahner-Slick Garden | Atlanta</p>
