This woman was amazing, inspirational, and is a fantastic role model for women everywhere. Her life and her mansion turned Elizabeth Street Garner Museum are truly spectacular and incredibly interesting. She had a very strong eye for art work, collecting pieces from artists before they even became famous. Widowed only a few years into her marriage she travelled the world, much to the dismay of her family and friends, and earned a reputation as an outgoing and eccentric figure. Inside her mansion is an entire garden complete with a working stone waterfall. Her grounds also host even larger gardens and hedge sculptures. It’s one of my personal favorite places I’ve ever been.
