Unidentified Garden (Connecticut)
This site in a wooded setting features extensive use of stonework and shade plants. It was designed by James Fanning, while the house was the work of architect Edward Larrabee Barnes. At least three Connecticut jobs designed by Barnes may be possibilities: the Buck House in Lakeville, the Marster House in Litchfield, and the Osborn House in Salisbury. This is one of several unidentified Connecticut gardens photographed by Molly Adams.
Persons associated with the garden include: James Fanning (landscape designer) and Edward Larrabee Barnes (architect).
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of magazine articles with images of the garden.
