Notes:
"During colonial times Buccleuch was the official residence of the governors of the colony. A box bordered path ran through the center of the garden, terminating in a large circular bed. In the wide beds on each side of the walk, grew Sweet Williams, poppies, peonies, moss roses, lemon lilies, and all the old favorites. The house faces the river, as did the houses of the southern estates and two elms flank it on either side, shading it and adding to the dignity and repose of the garden which was laid out by 1760."
Mount reads: "Edward Van Altena."
