Established in 1997, this half-acre garden is designed with a formal European flavor. It includes many architectural elements and incorporates a circle in a square theme. A circular privet surrounds a carved stone wishing well. Another highlight is a "thyme" bench with ceramic egg form legs.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Marion and Mary Lambert (former owners, 1927-1947); Sidney and Stella Shoenberg (former owners, 1947-1976); Joseph and Patricia Istwan (former owners, 1976-1986); Robert and Susan Fry (former owners, 1986-1996); L. Gay Goessling (landscape architect, 1997); Mark Seiber (masonry contractor, 1997); and Carol Fleming (artist).
