Notes:
In Ethelbert Furlong's brochure printed ca. 1930, he lists this garden as having "five gardens, walks, steps, pools, driveways, lawns, and general plantings." The hardscape around the house is all that is left to date. The woods surrounding the house are filled with shrubs and trees native to New Jersey and give this house privacy. Tall copper beeches stand in the front of the house.
