The Kampong

Horticulturalist and plant collector Dr David Fairchild bought the property in 1916 and named it "The Kampong" (Malay word for village or cluster of houses for an extended family). He used The Kampong as an introduction garden for specimens collected on his expeditions. The garden is notable for its flowering trees and tropical fruit cultivars.
