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.

Abstract:
Airlie Gardens in Wilmington passed through several owners, and each added his special touch. Once visited only by the social elite, the gardens opened to the public when W.A. Corbett purchased them in 1947. Home to the 150-year-old Airlie live oak and other Southern flora, Airlie Gardens almost fell prey to developers. They were saved through the efforts of C. Bruce Williams, who helped the New Hanover County Commissioners purchase them from the Corbett family in 1999 for $10.5 million. The gardens are currently under restoration.
