The property of Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens was given to the city of Richmond by the family of Lewis Ginter, a prominent 19th century businessman and philanthropist. Ginter made a fortune in tobacco, served in the American Civil War, developed Richmond's Ginter Park Neighborhood, and brought the Union Presbyterian Seminary to the city. His residence, Ginter House, is part of the Monroe Park campus of the Virginia Commonwealth University. Lewis Ginter is buried in Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery. Local author and Maury Place friend Brian Burns has written a book detailing Ginter's remarkable life, "Lewis Ginter:Richmond's Gilded Age Icon", available in local bookstores.
