|For more detail as to the founder and his sculpture wife see: http://www.brookgreen.org/hunt...|
Because of her husband's enormous wealth and the shared interests of the couple, the Huntingtons were responsible for founding fourteen museums and four wildlife preserves. That's what you can do when you build the first transcontinental railroad.
My grandson saying the Pledge ...
There are way too many sculptures to show here but let me say that they are everywhere, in the open, in nooks, in fountains, in the forest - all beautifully placed in conjunction with nature. This is a work done by Anna Huntington to commemorate the couple and their vision
Note the Live Oaks in the background. There must be hundreds on the 9200 acre property.
I'm not really sure what to show here. I have about 150 pictures and all are beautiful.

|Ann Huntington was about as rich as rich can get but yet she spent most of her long time on earth sculpturing animals. She loved horses and was a world expert on the anatomy of this and other animals too. They are all over her garden. What a legacy she left. No children but a wondrous garden. |
