The Gillette Garden
Designed by Charles Gillette (1886–1969), a prominent landscape architect who specialized in the creation of grounds reflecting Colonial Revival architecture. Gillette’s work was decidedly eclectic, influenced by formal design principles from English and European Renaissance traditions, as well as Colonial Revival themes from 18th century Virginia gardens. Among his most well known work are Virginia House, The University of Richmond and Agecroft Hall in Richmond
The Gillette Garden offers an elegant setting for hosting events. Maintained in part by the Meadowbrook Women's Club, the Garden makes outdoor events truly special. The fountain is the centerpiece of the Gillette Garden. Weddings are popular in the garden in the spring and fall.
