Notes:
This garden takes its name from Austin Radcliffe Baldwin and his wife Mary Mildred Williams Baldwin, who are known to have owned the property in 1911. The house was designed about 1901 by Harold Van Buren Magonigle and is described in a 1904 article as a "model replica of a cottage at Iffley Lock-on-the-Thames." This article also includes a copy of the garden plan, although it erroneously locates the property in Ridgefield rather than Glen Ridge, New Jersey. Trees, shrubs, and climbing plants and vines complemented the house. Although the exact date of the photographs is unknown they are believed to be from 1905-1910, when Thomas Sears took his other images in Glen Ridge (see NJ089000 for information on the dating of the Glen Ridge images). Identification of the site and images was facilitated by Sally Meyer of the Glen Ridge Historical Society.
Persons associated with the site include Austin Radcliffe Baldwin and Mary Mildred Williams Baldwin (former owners, ca. 1911) and Harold Van Buren Magonigle (architect, ca. 1901).
Summary:
The folder includes a worksheet, a photocopy of an article about the house and garden, and additional information about the property.
