Bellingrath Gardens & Home

Walter Bellingrath created the Bellingrath-Morse Foundation to manage Bellingrath Gardens and Home as a fitting and permanent memorial to his wife, Bessie. Although Bellingrath Gardens and Home receives income from the Bellingrath-Morse Foundation, two-thirds of our current operations are financed by admissions, gift shop and restaurant sales, memberships and contributions.

Please join the Friends of Bellingrath and help perpetuate the dream and legacy of Walter and Bessie Bellingrath – Bellingrath Gardens and Home, one of Alabama’s oldest and most famous cultural institutions. One hundred percent of your membership investment enables us to continue to restore and improve the historic Home and Gardens and to create interesting interpretive programs.

Create your own traditions to treasure at Bellingrath Gardens and Home as a member of the Friends of Bellingrath!
