Date:

1968-1968
Notes:
This was the home and garden of Lester A. and Inez Persy Crone, and was situated on a densely wooded site. Stone walls set off flowering borders of spring bulbs, while rhododendron and other shrubs provided a backdrop leading to the woods. Trees, however, were interspersed throughout the grounds, and rustic walkways wound amongst them, flanked by naturalistic plantings. A small lawn area provided a spot for outdoor seating. Despite the property's suburban location, the overall feel of the garden was of a much more rural and rustic site.
Persons associated with the garden include Lester A. Crone and Inez Persy Crone (former owners, ca. 1940-1970).
