Lauriston (Rumson, New Jersey)
This now-vanished ca. 6-acre garden was designed as a series of garden rooms in the manner of Sissinghurst. The garden design incorporated several distinctive vistas.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Henry A. Caesar (former owners, ca. 1910-1925); Charles U. Caesar (former owner); J. Howard Smith (former owner, ca. 1942); and Leon Cubberly (architect, ca. 1910).
The folders include worksheets and a photocopied page from a 1921 Garden Club of America publication listing the garden.
