Notes:
Kiluna Farm was the Long Island country estate of Barbara and William S. Paley and featured work by several noted landscape architects including Alice Recknagel Ireys, Russell Page, Thomas D. Church, Henry Francis du Pont, and the firm of Innocenti & Webel. The garden's design focused on a dell "transformed into a well-defined, planted punch bowl, with a large oval pond in the center, set in an inner frame of lawn, with an outer frame of ground covers, low evergreens, flowering trees and shrubs." Azaleas, rhododendrons, and mountain laurel were underpinned by more than 20 varieties of ground cover plants. The property also featured a vegetable garden and greenhouses.
Persons associated with the garden include: Barbara and William S. Paley (former owners, ca. 1947-1990); Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape architect); Russell Page (landscape architect); Thomas D. Church (landscape architect); Henry Francis du Pont (landscape architect); and Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects).
