Admission:
Free admission.

Join us for this one day only event on Tuesday, January 15 at 10am as Sally Ericson discusses Bellingrath Gardens and Home, the 65-acre public garden and historic home of Walter and Bessie Bellingrath, located on the Fowl River in Theodore, near Mobile, Alabama. Walter Bellingrath was one of the first Coca-Cola bottlers in the Southeast, and with his wealth built the estate garden and home. He and his wife, Bessie, lived in the home which has since been converted into a museum. Since the gardens opened to the public in 1932, they continue to welcome visitors to enjoy year-round floral pageantry.
