Abstract:
Davis describes the 10-acre The Elizabethan Garden on Roanoke Island. The garden is located on the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site--the place where an English colony vanished over 400 years ago. In 1950 a group of influential women who were visiting the site decided that a garden should be planted there. In 1951, they asked the Garden Club of North Carolina to help create the garden, and ten years later, on August 18, 1960, the garden opened.

A project of the Garden Club of North Carolina, the garden pays homage to the great garden landscapes of sixteenth century England. It was dedicated in August 1955 for the 368th anniversary of the birth of Virginia Dare.
