Many admire our lovely grounds, but did you know that the fountain at the east end of the garden was originally found on an estate in Newport, Rhode Island? Or that the nymph-like bronze statue entitled, “Wildflower,” by Edward Berge of Baltimore, Maryland (1876-1924) was selected as the most-loved piece at the 1916 Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, California? Or that the statue’s fountain was donated by the Planters Club of Boca Grande, and is a replica of the one in front of the town hall in Stockholm, Sweden.
