Lawrence C. Phipps Memorial Conference Center Garden (Denver, Colorado)
This formal William and Mary-inspired garden is framed by pergolas and brick walls, sweeping lawns, and comfortable terrace and courtyard areas. This traditional estate, now the property of the University of Denver, is unique in the western portion of the United States. Portions of the original landscape design, by Annette Hoyt Flanders, were destroyed in 1970 when part of the estate was subdivided.
Persons associated with the garden include: Senator and Mrs. Lawrence C. Phipps (former owners, 1933-1964); Annette Hoyt Flanders (landscape architect, 1935-1937); Charles Adams Platt (architect, 1929-1932); William Fisher (architect, 1929-1933); and Arthur Fisher (architect, 1929-1933).
The folders include worksheets and photocopied information about Annette Hoyt Flanders.
