Parque Natural Mexiquillo


Brookgreen Gardens

Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington of Connecticut purchased four derelict rice plantations, 9,100 acres, south of Myrtle Beach as a place for Anna to sculpt and display her work. (33.51857, -79.09589) They spent many years creating Brookgreen Gardens from the fallow land. There are over 1400 pieces displayed throughout the beautiful gardens. Only realistic sculptures by American artists are presented.

These birds were created Grainger McKoy. He carves each and every individual feather, paints it and then attaches it to the birds body.
