Brookgreen Gardens: (Old) Huntington’s Gate – Murrells Inlet SC

Description

The federal Civil Works Administration constructed the old entrance, Huntington’s Gate, to Brookgreen Gardens outside Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Living New Deal believes that the old gate is no longer extant.

“Huntington’s Gate, Route #49, CWA Project #99. Archer and Anna Huntington built Atalaya, a Moorish-style home between 1931-33. At that same time, they were building Brookgreen Gardens, which was intended to preserve the native flora and fauna and display objects of art within that natural setting. Brookgreen Gardens continues to operate as a National Historic Landmark and a display garden for figurative sculpture.” (Georgetown County Digital Library)
