The Eudora Welty House Garden

The Welty garden is a southern garden created by two educated women, typical of those created during the period between the two World Wars.

When Eudora's parents built the Welty home in 1925 in Jackson's first subdivision, Chestina Welty selected loblolly pines trees and one water oak to remain on the lot. Over the years several of the pines have been lost to lightning, but the oak tree stands as the focal point of the front yard.
