Notes:
"Arched openings through cedar hedges lead to tree planted lawns on each side of the house. These and the formal garden were hedged by euonymous. Practically all plantings in the lawn sections and in the garden are original or are careful replacements. The remaining acreage used by the Grants for orchards, vegetable garden and pasturage, and where stood the usual barn, carriage house, and stable buildings, have been developed by the present owner into a beautiful stretch of lawn and garden.
Persons associated with the property include: Thomas Grant (former owner, 1855-1863); Ben Hill (former owner); Josiah T. Leonard (former owner); Captain James White (former owner, 1888); and Mrs. Frances T. Bradshaw (former owner).
