Lockwood deForest was chosen to plan the garden. There were many fine trees already on the lot, and as time went on, gifts of magnolias and other varieties were received. Two sisters, Mrs. Ella G. Reeve and Mrs. Mary G. Hutchinson, gave the fountain located in the center courtyard in memory of a loved one. The inscription, which exactly fits the octagonal face of the fountain, is from Revelation 21:6, “I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”
