Notes:
Ca Sole, with its Italian farmhouse style and red tile roof, hints that the garden was meant to be Italianate as well. The house is on a hillside overlooking the Ohio River. In 1930 the terraced garden of the 3.5 acre property was surrounded by a rustic brick wall with arched cut-outs that provided views of the Ohio River and created a large garden room. Most of the wall has been removed, with parts still standing as decorative features. The current garden has pruned hedges with landscape roses, container planting in classical urns, and vines covering some walls.
The glass lantern slides were painted by Gladys Pratt, who has other work at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Persons, and firms associated with the garden and property include: William Horace Schmidlapp (former owner beginning in 1930); Lela Hinkley (former owner); Charles Scripps (former owner until 1993); Nicholas Ragland (former owner 1993-2006); Grosvenor Atterbury (architect); Umberto Innocenti (landscape architect); Vitale & Geiffert (landscape architects); and Gladys L. Pratt (colorist for lantern slides).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and write-ups of the property's history.
