SSGC Meeting

Location: Heritage Sandy Springs Community Room

Speakers: Staci Catron and Mary Ann Eaddy, co-authors 

Program: Seeking Eden: A Collection of Georgia’s Historic Gardens

 

Staci Catron is the Director of the Cherokee Garden Library at the Atlanta History Center. She met her co-author Mary Ann Eaddy, who is retired from the Historic Preservation Center of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, when Catron took a class taught by Eddy. The two worked together on the Georgia Historic Landscape Initiative launched in 2002 to find out what happened to the designed landscapes originally written about in the 1933 book Garden History of Georgia, 1733-1933. As the work on the initiative progressed the idea for the book was born.

The book both updates and expands the stories of almost 30 gardens identified in the Garden History of Georgia, providing both a record of the history and evolution of each garden as well as extraordinary photographs by their collaborator James R. Lockhart.
