Smith-Gilbert Gardens


In 1970, Dr. Robert Gilbert bought the Hiram Butler House and surrounding 13 acres in Kennesaw, Georgia. Over the following 35 years, he and Richard Smith realized their dream of developing the house and grounds, primarily to attract birds. Now open to the public, Smith-Gilbert Gardens is 16 acres of serene setting. United by woodland paths, the Gardens consists of separate groupings with individual elements of fascination, including a vegetable garden, the Bonsai exhibit, camellia garden, tea house and waterfall area, rose garden, and conifer display. Each area is complimented by thoughtfully positioned sculpture. Our Garden is a proud member of various horticultural groups: the American Conifer, American Daffodil, Atlanta Audubon, American Hosta and the Southeastern Camellia societies. Smith-Gilbert Gardens is passionate about education and conservation.
