Bellingrath Gardens and the Bellingrath Home
Bellingrath Gardens and the Bellingrath Home Author:The Bellingrath-Morse Foundation 1958 edition, Bellingrath Gardens has not changed a great deal since that time -- the property, formerly the home of Walter D. Bellingrath, (1869-1955 and founder of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company), is just spectacular. — The book is bulging with superb color photographs of the many magical spots throughout the gardens which are located alongside... more » of the Isle Aux-Oies River. The photos were taken by Bill Shrout, William W. Lavendar, and Fred W. Holder. There's not a lot of text in this book but it does include a brief history of the property, a biography of Walter D. Bellingrath, and a color map of the estate grounds. About half of the photos are dedicated to the home interior and its impedimenta, the latter ranging from the crystal and silver room to beautiful examples of French and English bisque.
