The house was constructed in 1818 and today is a reminder of the ante-bellum society. The property was restored and Mary Cantey Hamptons Garden was recreated. Hugh Dargan, a landscape architect, spent three years monitoring the process of landscape restoration. Unknown source for 35-mm slide. Palmetto Garden Club worked from 1961 to raze these buildings in order to retore 8 acres of elaborate town gardens which had lasted until 1940's.
