Notes:
The original landscaping for this .75-acre garden site was done in 1895, when the house was built. In 1983 the owners at that time restored the pool and added the perennial borders on either side, as well as the tapestry hedge that hides the vegetable garden from the main part of the garden. They also added the rose garden. In 1992 two huge maples were removed along the front of the property, while oaks were added for shade at the front of the house. In 1993 Doris Keating designed and planted two crescent-shaped beds on the front lawn with small ornamental trees, and redesigned two beds by the pool. Worthy of special note are the stewartia to the right of the terrace and the oxydendrum to the right of the driveway.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. A. Winsor Weld (former owners, before 1968); Mr. and Mrs. Randolph (former owners, 1968-1983); Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Dane (former owners, 1983-1995); Arthur Shurcliff (landscape designer, 1920s); and Doris Keating (landscape designer, 1993).
