Kouns Garden (Knoxville, Tennessee)
Situated on a 5.6 acre site, this garden complemented a Tudor-style home designed by Francis Painter and built in the 1940s of Tennessee sandstone. The house faces the Tennessee River, although the view is obscured by newer homes. Mountains can also be seen to the south. Garden borders filled with tulips in spring and perennials and annuals in other seasons provided a lovely complement to the house. Boxwood and other shrubs framed the space and its view of surrounding woods.
Persons associated with the garden include W. T. Moore (former owner, ca. 1940-); Francis Painter (architect, 1940s); and W. Sherman and Patricia Franke Kouns (former owners, 1980-2005).
The folder includes worksheets, printouts of an article about the house; copies of correspondence, and other information.
