Elizabeth Bradley Holbrook Garden (Wellsville, New York)
Date:
1903
1903-1998
Notes:
"This garden is unusual in several respects. It is not one but several gardens--a formal English garden, a terraced garden, a rock garden, a wildflower garden, a rose garden, cutting garden, kitchen garden, orchard and meadow. The design and workmanship of the terraces, the use of local fieldstone and ornamental wrought iron railings to sculpt the natural slope of the land into a variety of outdoor spaces and vistas is most unusual, as is the profusion of lilacs throughout. It is a sanctuary for birds and wildlife."
Persons associated with the property include: Harry and Myrtle Bradley (former owners, 1900-1955); Elizabeth Bradley Holbrook (Mrs. George W.) (former owner, 1955-1992); and Eric J. Reaves (landscape designer, 1922-1923).
Summary:
The folders include a garden design and narrative history, as well as a description and worksheets.
