"Miss Bessie's" Birthday Celebration

Monday, May 20, 2019

Walter Bellingrath’s epitaph for his wife, Bessie, reads, in part: “I shall always think of you wandering through a lovely garden, like that which you fashioned with your own hands.” Born on May 20, 1878, Miss Bessie left an unparalleled legacy with her beautiful Gardens and Home. Celebrate her 141st birthday with us, and be sure to visit the Bellingrath Gift Shop for its “Buy Like Miss Bessie” Sale!
