2 Title:   LeConte Furman Carter family papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Unknown  
  Dates:   1795-1999  
The collection consists of genealogy, correspondence, writings, photographs, daguerreotypes, and printed material. The early correspondence concerns the LeConte, Furman and Carter families. More recent correspondence is of Carolyn Shaw McMillan, a great granddaughter of Emma Florence LeConte Furman. Much of this correspondence deals with efforts to preserve LeConte-Woodmanston and to reconstruct the botanical garden. In 1973 the site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and of the original 3,354 acres, 63.8 acres were deeded to the Garden Club of Georgia in 1977. Most of the writings are by Emma Florence LeConte Furman, who kept diaries for many years, and also wrote of her travels and her family.
