Inspiring Women

Meadow Garden has always been a place for inspiring women: Dorothy Walton and the enslaved woman, Cloe, were captured at sea by the British during the Revolution. George Walton’s granddaughter, Octavia Walton LeVert, was a member of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association and wrote Souvenirs of Travel. The early Georgia Daughters saved Meadow Garden from demolition and founded one of the earliest house museums. Women have always played an important role in the history of Meadow Garden.

The Meadow Garden Board is a group of women who work together to share the story of American Independence and bring it to life through historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
