    Does anyone know of qualified appraiser that would be able to quantify the value of a yet-uninterpreted historic gardens? The private owner is interested in donating it to a non-profit for educational and interpretive purposes, but are at a loss of how to the site properly appraised.

    That's an exciting opportunity Laura, and it may be helpful to obtain an appraisal so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to accept the gift. However, I believe that IRS rules require the donor to obtain the qualified appraisal at the donor's sole expense.
