Notes:
Heron Haven is located on a sixty acre farm in Shawnee Mission, Kansas on a sloping hill next to Indian Creek. Its name was derived from the rookery of blue herons that nest in a sycamore tree located on the property. The development of the gardens on the property began shortly after World War II when the former family picnic cabin became the owners' permanent residence. The house features a U-shaped flagstone patio with a stone wall, fountain and pool. Features include a cutting garden, herb garden, vegetable garden, a small orchard for apple and pear trees, an asparagus bed, a cold frame and a raised strawberry bed. Structures on the property include a barn, horse barn, silo, two corncribs, a greenhouse, shed and shop.
