Notes:
Located about three miles from the center of Asheville, this nine-acre garden was established in 1950. Beneath a dam, and bordering a creek and lake, it was originally an experimental garden with about 1,200 species of plants. It has been modified somewhat from the original design but remains a showplace of mountain flora primarily due to the attention of the designer to growing conditions in the area. It now has approximately 800 specimens. This is an ever-evolving garden with extensive garden ornamentation and sculpture, which changes from time to time, since the current owner also is an art gallery owner.
Persons associated with the garden include: Doan Ogden (former owner, 1950-1987, and landscape architect, 1950-1980).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, garden plans from 1950 and 1998, and photocopies of articles about the garden and an excerpt from a master's thesis about designer and former owner Doan Ogden.
