Monmouth Historic Inn Gardens were first in the planning stages early in the 1980's and the designs were created by Bill Garbo, noted Mississippi horticulturist, who specializes in the design of gardens in the antebellum period. Today the gardens are maintained with great care by our staff and Gary Wills of Creative Exteriors.
Throughout the property there are magnificent Live Oak trees covered in Spanish Moss. Also Catalpa, Magnolia, Crape Myrtle and Cedar trees stand as a framework to the entrance of Monmouth.
There is an herb garden right off the Courtyard behind the mansion, where our Chef harvests the herbs for dinner and Roosevelt (bartender extraordinaire) chooses his mint for his specialty - Mint Juleps.
Amid the grounds you will find a rose garden, many flower beds, beautiful statuary, a pergola, gazebo, sanctuary and 2 stocked ponds for fishing.
There are 26 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens with brick sidewalks and pebble paths throughout. Each season brings surprises and treats.
