Brookgreen Gardens, located in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, is a renowned botanical garden, sculpture garden, and wildlife preserve that offers a unique blend of art, nature, and history. Established in 1931 by Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington, the gardens are situated on the site of four former rice plantations and cover over 9,100 acres.
