World's Best Gardens


Anne Spencer House & Garden Museum in Lynchburg, Virginia

During her lifetime, renowned Harlem Renaissance poet Anne Spencer entertained the most brilliant and revolutionary Black leaders at her home garden in Lynchburg, Virginia. The civil rights activist and gardener spent years cultivating a bountiful oasis filled with roses, verdant shrubs, and countless other flowers that served as a creativity laboratory.

Today, her granddaughter, Shaun Spencer-Hester, helps to preserve the poet's legacy as the executive director of the 
Anne Spencer House & Garden Museum, where guests are welcome to tour the home and grounds.
