This garden is located on seven eighths of an acre in Little Rock, Arkansas. Originally part of the development known as Edgehill, the garden was established in 1939 when the property was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Carl Bellingrath. In 1956 the property was sold to Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Moore Cameron of Cameron Feed Mills. The property was sold to the Balch family circa 1970 and remained in their possession until 1992. The garden as it was documented in 1986 was designed by Robert L. Shaheen in 1978. Garden features include a pergola, fountains and a swimming pool. The garden is accented by numerous statuary and urns. Plantings include climbing roses, perennials, azaleas, dogwood trees, bulbs, and rows of boxwood hedges.
