This garden and the associated museum were originally the property of the Cheek family who owned a chain of grocery stores. They were most noted for a coffee blend they developed for the Maxwell House Hotel which, of course, became a famous brand of coffee in its own right. The gardens now cover an area of about 100 acres.

Visited this larger, well-maintained garden on a steamy hot day in July. It has a large collection of ornamental plants, ponds and architectural/artistic displays. Well worth the visit.
