The Abernathy Gardens

For 53 years they defined the meaning of community involvement in the City of Newport News. Both George and Estell were pivotal in the growth and development of the community.

George was Chairman of Riverside Hospital Board of Trustees, chairman of the Warwick County Board of Supervisors, and served as the first and only Mayor of Warwick City. He was instrumental in the consolidation of Warwick City and Newport News.

Estelle was instrumental in the beautification of Patrick Henry Hospital and served in leadership positions on the Board of Directors. Her focus was on patient advocacy as well as fund raising efforts through her lectures throughout the country on herbs. She was a member and sponsor of several garden clubs on the Peninsula.
