Notes:
The property of 1,500 acres in 1846 included a ravine, stream, forest of tall trees, and a prairie. By 1976, the new owners formalized the flat fields with flowers, hedges, and trees. The garden, on 7 1/2 acres, is formal with boxwood hedges and unclipped box specimens. The gardens of Sissinghurst & Hidcot influenced the design, but it has old growth Douglas Firs. It also has a collection of magnolia and Michaelids, six Stewartia species, Eucryphia, Heheria, Rhododendron, Azalea, Fig, Pomegranates, and Davidia.
Persons associated with the property include: William Case (former owner, 1844-1903); and Wallace Huntington (landscape architect, 1976).
