St. Andrew’s Dune Church

A Southampton Garden Club member, Doris Magowan, established this award-winning garden in memory of her husband. Designed by an SGC member in 1984 and dedicated in June of 1987, it won first prize in a Zone III Landscape Design competition. Although the original garden was destroyed when St. Andrew’s Dune Church was moved back from the dunes to protect it from storms, the garden was rebuilt under the direction of Mrs. Magowan and another Southampton Garden Club member, the late Lee Lisman.  Lee’s husband, Dr. Richard D. Lisman, catalogued the garden’s plantings. When Mrs. Magowan died in 2001, she left a lifetime gift to maintain the garden which the garden club does each year in her memory.
