Notes:
"Mansfield Farm, located in Fauquier County, Virginia, was purchased by Mr. Thomas Atkinson in 1924. The house was a simple country house at the time and was improved and enlarged by its new owner."
"The aspen trees became the background for the central terrace; a low stone wall was built behind them to complete the outline of the garden. The pictures shown here were taken around 1937-1939. Mansfield Farm was sold in 1950 and I do not know the present condition of the garden, but understand that it is no long being maintained as of old. Alas, the aspen trees have died and not been replaced."
Persons associated with the property include: Thomas Atkinson and Neville Lemmon Atkinson (former owners).
