Notes:
This 2.2 acre garden site was established in 1925-26, and the bones of its original design are still discernable. The original landscape architect, Ruth Dean of New York City, specialized in small estate gardens. Using primarily indigenous plant material, she helped to create a country-like, informal setting. A stand of 200-year-old oaks remains between the house and the street, while a woodland walk with wild flowers has been maintained by three successive owners.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Ledyard Mitchell (former owners, 1926-1946); Mrs. and Mrs. Joseph D. Standart, Jr. (former owners, 1946-1969); Robert O. Derrick (architect, 1925); and Ruth Dean (landscape architect, 1925).
Summary:
