Located in the Edgehill area of Little Rock, the Bowen Garden was designed around 1948 by John F. Highberger, a Memphis landscape architect, to complement the Colonial Revival house on the site. It featured a springtime display of azaleas, dogwoods and other trees and shrubs within a wooded setting. Spacious lots in the development permitted vistas of neighboring gardens and properties. The property also included a small greenhouse.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include John F. Highberger (landscape architect, 1948); Foster Vineyard (former owner, 1940-1964): Margaret C. Vineyard Bowen (former owner, 1940-1989?); William Poston Bowen (former owner, 1964-?); and Block Realty Company (builders).
