Live Oak Allee, the grand entry to the site of the original house at Brookgreen Gardens. In the early 1700s, when Brookgreen Gardens was a rice plantation, 300 live oaks were planted in an oak garden. Part of the garden was Oak Allee, which was then the entrance to the plantation. Today it is the center of the sculpture garden.
