Dos Passos Garden (Mendham, New Jersey)
This was the home of Cyril F. Dos Passos, a lepidopterist associated with the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The chateau-style house shown in the images was built in 1928. In 1977 Dos Passos donated the home and nearly 90 acres of surrounding land to the New Jersey Conservation Foundation to be preserved in its natural state as open space. In 1984 the land was transferred to Mendham Township and became the Buck Hill Natural Area.
Persons associated with the garden include Cyril F. Dos Passos (former owner, ca. 1928-1977).
