Alfred B. Maclay Gardens

State Park - Florida

The Alfred B. Maclay State Gardens State Park is a botanical garden and historic site, located in Tallahassee, in northeastern Florida. The property associated with Maclay was part of the Lafayette Land Grant. In 1923, New York financier Alfred Barmore Maclay (1871–1944), the son of Robert Maclay, and his wife, Louise Fleischman, purchased the 1,935 acres (783 ha) Lac-Cal quail-hunting plantation and adjoining land. Maclay developed the gardens continuously until his death. His wife continued their development, opened them to the public in 1946, and in 1953 donated some 307 acres (1.24 km2) of their estate, including the gardens, to a predecessor of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
