Colorful garden paths winding by historic treasures contribute to the enjoyable atmosphere of MacCallum More Museum and Gardens. The formal gardens were begun in 1929 by Lucy Morton Hudgins, and expanded by her son, Commander William Henry Hudgins, in the 1940s, 1960s, and 1970s.
Our gardens feature five specialty gardens including the Rose Garden, Herb & Wildflower Garden, Pink Garden, Joy Garden, and the Future Childrens Garden. Below are descriptions and photos of each.
