1971-1971
Notes:
With design work by Nelva M. Weber, this was the home of Dr. Inglis Folger Frost, a well-known physician who practiced in Morristown, New Jersey. The site is assumed to have been in the Morristown area, but may have been in nearby New Vernon. The suburban home featured spacious lawns surrounded by trees, and also incorporated specimen trees in the lawn areas. A long driveway was lined on one side by a pleached hedge. A low brick wall at the end of one of the lawns enclosed a small pool accented by whimsical frog and squirrel statues. An awning overhung a modest patio and outdoor living area, while the front of the house was landscaped with randomly placed shrubs and trees.
Persons associated with the garden include Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1965-1976) and Dr. Inglis Folger Frost (former owner, ca. 1965-1976).
