A generation ago two extraordinary women named Elizabeth lived and gardened just down the street from one another.  Together, they made Ridgewood Avenue in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the most famous addresses in Southern garden history.

The property of Elizabeth and Edwin Clarkson, Wing Haven Garden & Bird Sanctuary, is a respite for songbirds and wildlife, and a welcoming place to discover the beauty and wonders of nature.

Ten houses down the street, the property of internationally celebrated garden writer Elizabeth Lawrence, the Elizabeth Lawrence House & Garden, is a dynamic living laboratory featuring an amazing variety of plants, with something in bloom every day of the year.

Together, these vibrant historic properties are known as Wing Haven, a unique destination that inspires passion for the natural world.
