Notes:
The gardens seen today began in the 1890s. A restoration project for the gardens began in 1926 with Annette Hoyt Flanders of New York as the landscape architect. Morven's gardens are made up of several areas in order to break up the expanse of lawn. Wall and hedges of boxwood and euonymus enclose different portions of the garden. Flower beds are laid out in regular patterns.
Persons associated with the property include: Colonel William Short (former owner, 1796-1813); Martin Thacker (builder); David Higginbotham (former owner); Samuel H. Marshall (former owner); Mr. and Mrs. Charles Stone (former owners, 1926); Mr. and Mrs. Whitney Stone (former owners); Annette Hoyt Flanders (landscape architect, 1920's); and Thomas Thacker (gardener).
