General:
"Bontura" Garden is a garden in two parts, which is divided front from back by a narrow brick carriage area. Three Moorish arch entrances define the front of this building. A brick wall marks the left garden side, while the house, built in 1851, creates the right side of the garden. Across the front is an iron fence of open vertical bars. Major plants in the front space area Southern magnolia tree, a large crape myrtle tree, the largest in Mississippi, and a large banana shrub/tree. Camellia Sasanquas are along the whole left wall. Two thirty-feet tall English Boxwoods are in front of the carriage house, along with Fatsia, ferns, camellias and the large magnolia tree. Azaleas are planted near the house and at corners. The back garden space has Lady Banksia roses, white and yellow, across the full left wall. A dogwood graces the back fence and is part of a flower bed filled with various annuals and perennials as the seasons change. The back garden is entered through a door from within the carriage area.
Persons associated with the garden include: Frances Asberry Newcomb (former owner, 1833); Edward Graham (former owner, 1834-1837); Robert Patterson (former owner, 1837-1839); Robert D. Smith (former owner, 1851-1854); Ann Smith (former owner, 1854-1858); Joseph Bontura (former owner, 1860-1874); Fanny Bontura Hendricks (former owner, 1874); Mrs. Angie Pogue and Mrs. Theresa Pullen (former owners, 1903-1916); Rumble and Wensel Co.
