Episode 105 | 26m 41s

The widow of a Cincinnati steel magnate, Mrs. Garvey made news by building what was noted as the most expensive house built in Reno in 1934. The lush walled garden befits the reputation of Paul Revere Williams, who enjoyed integrating landscaping with architecture. Williams was an African-American architect who stood out among his peers, and whose work still stands out today.
