By Martha Burgin and Maureen Holtz
In 1946, Robert Allerton donated his estate to the University of Illinois. For the last 60 years, residents from throughout central Illinois have spent leisurely hours wandering these formal gardens which are punctuated with sculptures from around the world. Although the gardens and mansion are now very public, until this book, Robert Allerton himself was a mystery. Through painstaking research, the authors have uncovered facts, letters and more that paint a picture of Robert Allerton, a very private man whose real story is perhaps even more interesting than the local speculation and lore. The book includes dozens of photographs, both old and new, which bring the man and his gift to life for the reader.

Photographs by Michael Holtz | Text by Maureen Holtz
This book showcases two extraordinary estates: Allerton Park and Retreat Center near the town of Monticello, Illinois, and Lawai-Kai (also called Allerton Garden) on the southern end of the island of Kauai. Both were homes to the quiet philanthropist, Robert Allerton (1873-1964). His Illinois home, Allerton Park and Retreat Center, was his first palette where he learned to mingle art and landscape architecture. His second home in Kauai allowed him to work with more sculpture and add exotic plants. The properties were ultimately bequeathed to the University of Illinois and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens, which opened the door to their glorious vistas to everyone. This coffee-table style book is filled with over one hundred beautiful glossy color photographs of both properties that will take your breath away.Overnight Lodging Gift CertificateGift certificate
