Notes:
Reynolda Gardens, was designed in 1915 by Philadelphia landscape architect, Thomas Sears. Reynolda gardens was a part of the 1,000 acre estate owned by R. J. Reynolds, founder of R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. The four and a half acre formal gardens have Japanese Weeping Cherries, Japanese Cedars, Saucer Magnolias, English Boxwood and annual and perennial flowering beds. About one-half of the original Upper Gardens are now used for vegetable, cut flowers and an All-American Rose Garden. There are 126 acres of open fields and woodlands with wildflowers and native trails.
The Lord and Burnham conservatory was built in 1912, restored in 1982, and houses a collection of tropical plants. Bedding plants for the gardens and poinsettias used for annual Christmas displays are raised in the growing houses.
