Miss Dorothy Willard Estate (Sneedens Landing, New York)
Date:
1939
ca 1939
Notes:
Knowing he was going to construct a moraine here, F. H. Leubuscher first used bulky pieces of western New Jersey sandstone in the quarry garden at the 1939 International flower Show in Madion Square Garden, New York City, and then moved them here. The rocks were arranged to apear as if they had been dislodged from an underlying strata. A waterfall feeds the swimming hole. A concealed underground chamber house filters and recirculates the water. The entrance gate to the estate was brought from Europe with scattered motifs across it. These were regrouped into a coherent pattern by Leubuscher.
Person(s) associated with the garden include Dorothy Willard (former owner) and Frederic H. Leubuscher (landscape architect).
