Notes:
With its garden established around 1926, this property was once the home of Charles and Dorothea Harding. Mr. Harding chaired the board of the New York Botanical Garden for many years. The site still has many unusual trees planted during the Hardings' ownership, including a copper beech, a large ginkgo, a Cedrus atlantica, and a variety of maples and ilex (holly). This is a mostly green space with interesting trees and shrubs and both white and Japanese gardens.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles B. and Dorothea Harding, (former owners, 1926-1954); and Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape designer, 1971 and 1989).
Summary:
The folders include worksheets and a photocopy of a book chapter about the garden which features a site plan, a detailed plan of the Japanese garden, and a plant list.
