The house was built in 1914 and the garden established in 1946. The brick- walled garden was created for musical events. The Italian Garden, with its Minstrel Gallery is planted in white flora. The Water Garden has cast iron statues over 200 years old. The statues were cast in England and brought to New Orleans before the Civil War. Another focal point is the porcelain fountain from the St. Petersburg garden of Catherine the Great.
