Afton Villa Garden is the garden of Mrs. Genevieve Trimble in St. Francisville, LA. It illustrates the passion of gardening in the deep south, not and easy task, on approximately 100 acres. The core of the garden is positioned in the ruins of Afton Villa, at one time one of the largest houses in the south. The house burned in the early 1960's.
