Allerton Gardens

Tucked away in the Lawai Valley, in the middle of busy, sunny Poipu, on the South Shore of Kauai, the Allerton Garden is as close to the Garden of Eden as you may ever see. The Garden is the labor of love of Robert Allerton, heir of Samuel Allerton, a wealthy Illinois businessman who made his millions as a farmer, co-founder of the First National Bank of Chicago, and owner of five Chicago stockyards—about as far from the Garden of Eden as you can get.
