DeGolyer Gardens

The 21,000-square-foot home of Mr. and Mrs. Everett DeGolyer serves as the centerpiece to this luxurious garden.

Landscape architects Arthur and Marie Berger designed the 4.5-acre DeGolyer Gardens for the DeGolyer family in 1940. Many of the original garden features remain, including the Magnolia Allee, the Sunken Garden and the Octagonal Fountain. The McCasland Sunken Garden and the Boswell Family Garden, both renovated and reopened in 2006, are favorite spots for intimate weddings.

In 2012, the existing entry landscape was replaced with a new design featuring lush, hardy tropicals and palms. The DeGolyer Estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the Texas Register of Historic Places, and is open daily for tours.
