Memorial Garden at Trenton Country Club (West Trenton, New Jersey)
The Trenton Country Club began in 1897. By 1957, the club included an irrigated 18-hole golf course, three re-built tennis courts, and a swimming pool. The previous name for the property, Oaklands, given to the original farm property by its first owners, is derived from the many old oak trees that dot the property. The Memorial Garden is located on the property near a driveway.
Persons associated with the garden include: George Woodruff (former owner); Trenton Country Club (owner, 1897-present); Tom Tuttle (greens keeper, 1999); and Tom Bockes (architect, 1960).
The folder includes a work sheet, garden plans, plant list, photo copies of articles about the club, and photo copies of golf course view and an 1897 view of road and grounds.
Oak tree has been listed in New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Division of Parks and Forestry, New Jersey's Biggest Trees, summer, 1991
