Seeking Eden: A Collection of Georgia’s Historic Gardens

Seeking Eden promotes an awareness of, and appreciation for, Georgia’s rich garden history.

Battersby Hartridge

The stories of nearly 30 designed landscapes first identified in Garden History of Georgia, 1733-1933, published by the Peachtree Garden Club in Atlanta in 1933, have been updated and expanded. Seeking Eden provides a record of each garden’s evolution and history as well as its current appearance. Dating from the mid-18th century to the early 20th century, these publicly and privately owned gardens include 19th–century parterres, Colonial Revival gardens, Country Place Era landscapes, rock gardens, historic town squares, college campuses, and an urban conservation garden.

The duration of this tour is 45 minutes plus additional time for Q&A.
