Hoodlands (Wayne, Pennsylvania)
Hoodlands is a two-acre site whose garden was developed between 1972 and 2003. It features a stream, Abraham's Run, and a steep cliff that divides the land into two distinct parts: a lower acre that includes the 1720 house, garage, lawn, lower gardens, and stream, and an upper acre accessible by steps on either side of the property. Features include terraces, garden beds, a gazebo, and pathways and gardens carved into the upper woodlands. Woodland plants include laurel, azalea, rhododendron, trillium, heuchera, tricyrtis, and hardy cyclamen.
Persons associated with the property include: William George (former owner, 1763); Henry Zook (former owner, 1791); and Agnes B. and Louis Hood (former owners, 1972-2003).
The folders include worksheets, a garden plan, a narrative history and description of the garden, and other information.
