Notes:
The street view of this typical 1950s ranch house belies the specimen gardens in the rear. The lot slopes back from the street to a spring fed creek with a log cabin beside running water. The cabin is used as a guest house. The garden is laced with naturalistic paths all converging at the log house in the rear. The paths are edged with fern, wildflowers and specimen rhododendron plants. Near the house, a terrace provides a place for alfresco dining and bird watching.
Persons and/or organizations associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Frank H. Keener (former owners, 1956-1998); and Doan R. Odgen (landscape architect, 1956).
