The Call-Collins House is surrounded by brick walkways and patios built starting in the late 1940s. Scroll through the historic photos below that show how plantings around the house have changed over time.

Many of the understory trees visible here, planted by Mary Call Collins in the 1970s and 1980s, are no longer part of the landscape. Note the blooming azalea and dogwood. Today, north of the patio, are recently installed native understory trees, including dogwood and Ashe's magnolia. Photo from The Grove's collection

Many of the brick pavers brought to the site in the 1940s were originally manufactured by the Graves Brick Company in Birmingham, Alabama. As downtown Tallahassee city streets like Monroe and Adams transitioned from brick pavers to asphalt, residents salvaged the old brick pavers for new purposes. Photo from The Grove's collection
