The Park House (Montclair, New Jersey)
This .75-acre garden incorporates design work by D. Clark and Ethelbert E. Furlong. Clark's original plan (ca. 1909) was for a front garden between the house and the street. In the late 1920s Furlong developed the back of the property as a secluded woodland retreat. From the terrace directly behind the house a stone path leads down a steep bank to the lower level. Also, a manmade brooklet runs down the bank amid stones to a large pool. A fireplace is on the lower level. Bordering the back property line is a small branch of a local river.
Persons associated with the garden include: D. Clark (landscape architect, 1909); Ethelbert E. Furlong (landscape architect, 1928); Dudley S. Van Antwerp (architect, early 1900s); and Lyster C. Reighly, II (former owner, 1920s-1930s).
The folder includes a worksheet and an abbreviated garden plan.
