Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Gardens (New York, New York)
Formerly known as the Abigail Adams Smith Museum, this site is located on East 61st Street in New York City and was once part of a 23-acre estate. Following the acquisition of the property by the Colonial Dames of America in 1933, landscape architect Mary Deputy Cattell was commissioned to design an 18th-century style garden that featured espaliered ivy trained on fences, and plant material, bulbs, and flowering shrubs typical of that period. Some years later, following expansion of the site through the purchase of an adjacent building, the garden was redesigned by Alice Recknagel Ireys into its present form.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mary Deputy Cattell (landscape architect, 1930s); and Alice Recknagel Ireys (landscape architect).
The folders include worksheets and other information.
