This one-acre site, whose development began in 1930, features extensive azalea plantings, as well as a cutting garden, stone paths and terraces, and a tree house. The gardens fully complement the New England-style architecture of the house and outbuildings, and display a unity through the use of masses of single and complementary colors.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. John Sweeney Mellinger (former owners, 1930-1978); Ruth London (landscape designer, 1930); A. Gregory Catlow (landscape designer, 1978); and John F. Staub (architect).
The folder includes a worksheet and a copy of the garden plan. The garden is noted for its azaleas, offset by broad expanses of lawn.
