Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens

BayouBend-114I’ve lived in Houston for most of my adult life and done just about everything you can do as far as touristy things go. So why have I never heard of this before last week?

Bayou Bend is… “the Museum of Fine Arts Houston house museum for American decorative arts and paintings. Displayed in the former home of Houston civic leader and philanthropist Ima Hogg (1882–1975), the collection is one of the finest showcases of American furnishings, silver, ceramics, and paintings in the world. The house is situated on 14 acres of organically maintained gardens in Houston’s historic River Oaks neighborhood.”

It was spectacular. We visited it this past weekend on a gorgeous Spring day. It gives a nice glimpse into the lives of the River Oaks elite. Adults $12.50. Free on various Sundays.
