Noyes Garden (Manset, Maine)
This one-acre property on the coast of Maine has a view of Soames sound. The garden was created by a retired wharf worker and his wife. A white picket fence divided the garden from the front yard. It measured nine by 44 feet. A lathhouse provided shade and protection for the fuschias and begonias. The garden was filled with vegetables, fuschias, begonias, and dahlias; and became a welcome place for neighbors and strangers to visit.
Person(s) associated with the garden include(s): Mr. and Mrs. John A. Noyes (former owners).
The folder includes a work sheet and copies of two newspaper articles.
