A Summit Avenue Mansion Refurbished

Restoring the gardens and estate of this 100-year old Summit Avenue mansion was a blend of old and new.  A reflecting pool had been covered with soil and sod for decades but was brought back to life by Southview Design landscaper, Tim Johnson.  Working with the Minnesota Historical Society, he brought it back to what it looked like in the early 1900's.  Read how he accomplished this plus the colorful history of the home where F.Scott Fitzgerald dined.
