Millwind (Greenville, Delaware)
Millwind's garden was established in the late 1930s on a site overlooking the Hoopes Reservoir. A low brick wall surrounded the terraces containing the formal gardens and pool. The hillside below, leading down to the water, was planted with dogwoods and azaleas. Other garden features included an apple orchard, a vegetable garden, cold frames, and a small greenhouse.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: George and Didi Beach (former owners, 1935-1945); Robert Wheelwright (landscape architect); Douglass Buck, Jr. (landscape designer); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects); and Victorine & Samuel Homsey, Inc. (architects, 1939).
The folder includes worksheets and a printed description of the garden and house from 1963.
