McMillian describes the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont. The garden was the brainchild of retired textile executive Daniel Stowe who announced the project at his 78th birthday party in 1991. He donated millions of dollars and 400 acres of his land to the project. In 1999, the $23 million garden opened. Stowe's last conception was an orchid conservatory which is under the direction of Lee Potts who has an encyclopedic knowledge of the plant. Stowe died in 2005 at age 92.
