Since 1932 the Garden Club of Houston has been involved with the development and maintenance of the gardens at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. In that year the original landscape plan drawn by Ruth London was given to the museum and executed, and the club's commitment to the gardens has remained to this day. The plantings are changed seasonally.
Persons associated with the property include Ruth London (landscape designer).
