A. V. Davis Estate Gardens

One of the gardens at the Arthur Vining Davis estate in Mill Neck, designed in 1922. Davis had Ellen Biddle Shipman and Ferrucio Vitale design the landscaping. Davis himself was at one time the third richest person in America and owned 1/8th of Dade County in Florida. He left most of his $400 million estate to various charities upon his death in 1962.
