Notes:
Arden House sits on land in Orange County, New York, originally purchased by Edward Henry (E.H.) Harriman in 1885, atop a ridge with the valley of the Ramapo River on one side and the Forest and Cranberry lakes on the other. The house was designed by architects Carrere & Hastings, with landscape architecture by Wadley & Smythe. Harriman's son, W. Averell Harriman, was given the house by his widowed mother in 1915. Following use by the Navy in World War II, the house was given to Columbia University in 1950. It became a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and is now used as a conference center.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Edward Henry (E.H.) Harriman (former owner, 1885-1909); W. Averell (William Averell) Harriman (former owner, 1915-1950); Wadley & Smythe (landscape architects); and Carrere & Hastings (architects).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet and part of a brochure describing the conference center.
