Notes:
This garden featured design work by Nelva M. Weber. Working with a hilly, somewhat wooded site, Weber took advantage of the house front's southern exposure and the rear of the houses's protection from winter winds. A stone terrace provided an outdoor living area and was designed to preserve a large specimen tree in its center. Stone stairs, walls, and shrubs defined a lawn area.
Persons associated with the garden include: Frita Morrow (former owner); and Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect).
Images for AAG Garden #s ADM018 and ADM019, both unidentified gardens, were found on the same film strips as images for CT333.
