The pastoral landscape of Rip Van Winkle Gardens explodes with the color of iris, magnolia, and hibiscus blossoms, in contrast with verdant live oaks and cypress trees. Take a guided tour or stroll the meandering paths on your own. On the property is the Joseph Jefferson Mansion which was built in 1870 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Joseph Jefferson was an American actor known for his role as Rip Van Winkle. Explore heirlooms, art and American and French Empire furniture. There is a fee to enter valid for both attractions.
