2023 Conference – Friday Afternoon William C. Coker House and Gardens Tour
*Please note that you may only register for this tour if you are attending the conference*
The William C. Coker house and garden is the centerpiece of Chapel Hill’s Franklin-Rosemary Historic District. Built in 1908 by the Father of Botany in the Southeastern U.S., this estate remains a fascinating fusion of distinctive architecture and a botanically rich landscape. Designed applying the early 20th century principles of Frank Lloyd Wright for residential architecture, Coker created a magnificent house that connects beautifully to the enduring landscape, including magnificent 100+ year old trees planted by Coker. The property is protected by Preservation North Carolina.
This tour is limited to 20 people maximum.
