Impressive 4-acre garden on former estate

Hopelands Gardens is a 4-acre garden and former estate of the Aiken Winter Colony (a time period when wealthy northerners flocked to the area). The gardens are now city-owned and operated and are enjoyed for afternoon strolls and evening events by locals and visitors alike. Hopelands' water features, bridges and statues make it a popular photography location. On site is also a Sears & Roebuck Dollhouse (the original owner's playhouse and schoolroom for their children) and the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame.
