Bellingrath Gardens and Home, Theodore

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Bellingrath Gardens and Home, a former holiday fishing camp, features meandering paths among azaleas, camellias and annuals-filled beds--as well as a 15-room English Renaissance house. Prominent architect George B. Rogers designed the home and gardens for the Bellingraths in 1935. He and Bessie Bellingrath collected camellias and azaleas from across the South to enliven the garden. Stop by the fountain plaza--an artesian spring that has been contained and redirected into pleasing runnels to the Mermaid Pool, Grotto and Fowl River. Climb the steps of the rockery to see the terraced pools and waterfalls. Take time to explore the Bellingraths' home and its original furnishings.
