The Montgomery Story

Written by historian Bertram Zuckerman, The Montgomery Story chronicles the legacy Robert H. Montgomery and Nell Foster Montgomery Jennings left to South Florida. It recounts their backgrounds, the early years in Dade County as Colonel Montgomery built his Coconut Grove Palmetum estate, the development of Fairchild Tropical Garden, and the launching of The Montgomery Foundation, Nell’s memorial to her late husband that was to become Montgomery Botanical Center.

Hardcover 88 pg - $19.90 (+ tax, S&H)


Gun toting, mineral prospecting—and still a lady—Isabel Foster, mother of Nell Montgomery Jennings, led an adventure-filled life with her husband, Mac. Her story, as told to writer and friend Nixon Smiley, is a humor-filled and sometimes poignant narrative set in the rough and tumble Southern states of Tennessee, North Carolina, and Florida during the early decades of the 20th century.

Hardcover 88 pg - $10.00 (+ tax, S&H)
