Notes:
The Mt. Vernon schoolhouse was built in 1851. It closed in 1913 and remained vacant until it sold in 1928, when it was converted into a bungalow for private use. The schoolhouse, which is listed on the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission Register of Historic Sites and Landmarks, sits on a knoll with dry woods to the north and east. The natural plants in the woods gradually mix with perennial borders. Whenever possible, indigenous plants are grown.
Person associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Austin G. Maury (former owners, 1928-?), Dr. and Mrs. Edmund Meinfelder (former owners, ?-1984); and Mr. and Mrs. John Campbell Miller (former owners, 1984-1987).
