Highgate (Augusta, Georgia)
Justice Starnes developed the gardens after adding onto the ca. 1810 structure. The property was surrounded by a brick and iron fence with high gates, hence the name of the garden. In the early 1900's, new owners added shrub gardens with a combination of native and exotic flowering and evergreen shrubs.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: John Course (former owner, early 1800s); Justice Ebenezer Starnes (former owner, late 1800s); and Mrs. Henry C. Cohen (former owner, ca. 1930s).
