Applewood is a 1925 replica of an early Pennsylvania farmhouse. The estate includes stone walls, a courtyard and two out buildings. The goal of the owner is to create a feeling of openness, informality and simplicity, compatible with the architecture of the house.
Persons associated with the garden include: W. John Dewey (former owner, 1940-1958); Robert Hankock (former owner, 1959-1974); and McIlvain & Roberts (architect, 1925).
The folder includes a work sheet site plans, planting lists and article written by garden owner.
