A Taste of the Good L

Hopelands Gardens is a 14-acre estate built in the late 1800s that was donated to the public by the generous owners in 1970. You can meander paths shaded under 100-year-old live oaks as you peruse the grounds and imagine life as an estate owner. You are also invited to check out the “Dollhouse,” the former playhouse and schoolhouse of the children who lived on the estate. The Hopelands hosts special events like concerts in the summer and the annual Christmas in the Hopelands. Every night during the Christmas season, the gardens are lit up with over 100,000 lights to get visitors in the holiday spirit.
