Abstract:
The house originally owned by Sarah Green Jones and Pembroke Jones and its gardens have served many purposes for former owners and the community. It has weathered storms, entertained locals, hosted the Azalea Festival, and provided healing for the battle-scarred youngest son of the Corbett family, who moved in the house in 1948. Though the house is gone, its gardens is very much present. Now a popular visitation spot for people of all ages, Airlie Gardens offers live music, bird walks, and educational programs for schoolchildren throughout the year.
