Notes:
Calvin Tomkins, Jr. built Rose Cove in 1900. The property is located high on a hillside with views of the Hudson River. From what can be assumed by studying the photos, a stone terrace was a level above the formal gardens. Steps led down through woods to the two gardens--rose and cutting gardens. Furlong described his work in a business brochure as "seven gardens, garden walks, pools, fountains, garden houses, perennial borders, [and] natural plantings." It is currently unknown where the other five gardens were located. It is known that one was a sunken garden. The property was subsequently subdivided and several houses were added to the original site.
Persons and Organizations associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Calvin and Kittie Tomkins, Jr. (former owners, 1900-1930s?); Mrs. Katherine Villard (former owner, 193?-?); and Ethelbert Furlong (landscape architect, 1920s).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, copy of patent approval for trademark by Kittie N. Tomkins, and site plan.
