Nearby Rochester, Minnesota
is the home of the famed Mayo Clinic. Dr Charles Mayo, on of
the founders, lived in this mansion from 1911 to 1938.
The Mansion's website states, "European and Japanese
influenced gardens surrounding the
Mansion included features .such as a graduated system of
eight ponds, a tempietto, pergola, teahouse, various
statues and sculptures, "dragon tooth" limestone walls, and
a system of concrete and stone steps and walkways. Mayo's
home reflected the ideas of the Country Life Movement as it
pertained to the 20th Century estate design."
