“Bath Gardens preserves one of the last vestiges of Georgia’s antebellum resorts. Originally used as a place of respite from the hot Georgia summers where visitors could cool off in cold spring water, Bath was once a noted village where Georgia’s elite gathered as guests of wealthy Burke County planters who spent the summer months here. Bath Gardens, originally created by Alonzo Boardman in the 1950s and 1960s, has now been reclaimed with a surprising and beautiful array of ornamental flowers, trees and shrubs planted on a terraced valley filled with springs that form a pond. Patterned after an Austrian village, the lodge and spring houses have an old world charm that makes this a perfect place for special events.”

“I spent 3 days out exploring your property, bought a mantle and my husband spent 3 weeks restoring it and mounting it….I ? it”
“In a world filled with chaos, Bath Gardens means quite a great deal to me. Every time I go to this garden, I am taken aback at how much potential this hidden gem has. The goals that the founder and her Board have set into action are what attracts me so much towards this beautiful land. Especially when it comes down to the potential for educational attractions; allowing children to be able to experience a mixture of history, natural science, and art all in one collective. It’s one thing to be able to experience beauty, but another to be able to reflect a beautiful message. Bath Gardens has a message to be learned and cherished: that restoration and commitment into saving history and art is vital to us as a society.”

“My company, Laurie McRae Interiors, was chosen to conduct the estate sale during the Bath Gardens Opening Event. Every aspect of the event was Southern Hospitality at its best…The gardens are so lovely and the setting so peaceful. It was a privilege to be associated with Bath Gardens Foundation and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship, worthy of the history and heritage of the venue.”
