Visitors and locals alike can take a stroll through the 14 acres of Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens; here, one can explore manicured gardens and the former home of Ima Hogg, Governor Jim Hogg's daughter, who was known as the First Lady of Texas because of her philanthropic work throughout the state and the country. An exquisite collection of decorative arts and paintings are showcased in the former historic home.
