Notes:
Started in 1960, the garden previously consisted of elms, Norway spruce and dogwood. The garden since 1960 has "grown like 'Topsy'" with no overall plan. The property includes a shade garden, a "meadow" garden, an herbaceous garden surrounding the pool, a conifer border, and a gazebo formed by an old apple tree. A vegetable garden exists off the kitchen. The plant material was purchased at many nurseries; many of the trees were found as seedlings growing along the roadside.
People and/or firm(s) associated with this property include: Allen W. Dodge (former owner and builder of house, 1852); Alice Dodge (former owner, ?-1931); Annie Beatty (former owner, 1931-1945); Abigail Sard (former owner, 1945-1960); and Stephen and Margarett M. Vernon (garden designers, 1960-present).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plan, descriptions by owner, copies of newspaper articles, garden tour information, and plant lists.
