Chandor Gardens Walking Tour

As many of you may know, I am very fond of gardens--mine and everyone else's. Here is one of the loveliest....
Douglas Chandor, an Englishman, came to this country in 1926 and established himself as one of the great artists of the 20th century. His portraits of Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill are among five of his paintings in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.
In 1934 Douglas Chandor married Ina Kuteman and settled in her hometown of Weatherford, Texas. There they built their home named White Shadows and the surrounding, world renowned gardens.
