The Elizabethan Gardens

          "The Garden Club of North Carolina created a beautiful 16th century style garden as a living memorial to the ill-fated lost colonists. Flower-bordered walkways, sweet-scented blossoms, ancient garden statuary, herbs, and a wildflower area combined with English Portraits and gazebo highlight the gardens."

"The Elizabethan Gardens"

          "The Gardens, created in 1951 by The Garden Clubs of North Carolina, Inc., are located on Roanoke Island near Manteo, adjacent to "The Lost Colony" Waterside Theatre and Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. The Elizabethan Gardens, a unique American garden, will appeal to horticulturists with myriad varieties of plants, nature lovers with wildflowers and indigenous shrubs and trees, history buffs with its historical setting at the site of the first English Colony in the New World and culture seekers with period furniture and English portraits in the Gate House and ancient garden statuary and ornaments, many given by The Late Honorable John Hay Whitney, former Ambassador to the Courts of St. James, and Mrs. Whitney."
