The grounds are beautiful. The plus for us was getting to see the inflatable white rabbit exhibit that we'd seen at our Memphis museum. Also, the mansion is beautiful and worth the visit. Tickets are a bit pricey.

The gardens were in disrepair and quite disappointing. The tour of the mansion was interesting. The mansion is also in need of some repair as well.

Home of the Maxwell Coffee investors which they sold for $40M and developed this estate in 1929. There are some areas of renovation on going. The gardens are well maintained with different styles to explore. The original sculpture trail is a little worn but still...More
