Tucked into an established neighborhood of gracious homes and mature trees in San Marino is the Huntington Art Galleries, Library and Botanical Gardens.

..

The Huntington was originally a working citrus ranch, purchased by Henry E. Huntington in 1903. Huntington was the nephew of Collis P. Huntington, one of the Big Four of western railroading. Henry Huntington followed in his uncles footsteps and developed the electric railway system for intercity Los Angeles.

..

Huntington was also a collector of books and had a great interest in horticulture. He established a large library and started a 120-acre botanical garden while his wife, Arabella, collected art and sculptures. In 1919 they bequeathed their 300-acre estate, including their home, the Beaux Arts Mansion, now the Huntington Art Gallery, to a nonprofit educational trust to be shared with the public.

..

Their vision has been realized. Today the Huntington hosts more than 500,000 visitors each year. Many come for the botanical garden, which features 12 different gardens on 120 acres.

..

Among the earliest gardens developed by Huntington were the lily ponds, rose garden, palm and desert garden and a nineacre Japanese garden in 1912. At that time, westerners were intrigued with Asian culture. Huntington even commissioned a Japanese craftsman, Toichiro Kawai, to build the authentic Moon Bridge.

..

Through the years, new gardens have been added, including the colorful Shakespeare garden of annual and perennial blooms in 1959 and the subtropical and Australian garden featuring 100 species of eucalyptus in 1964.

..

The most ambitious project of recent years is the Chinese Garden of Flowing Fragrance, completed in 2008 after four years of construction.
