Notes:
The home of Gustav H. and Jane Crowley Koven was photographed twice by Molly Adams: once before 1976 and again in 1985. Nelva M. Weber's design for the property featured a tree-lined driveway leading to house, which was slightly elevated from the driveway level and set off by a brick wall and stairs. By 1985 two garden areas had been developed adjacent to an in-ground swimming pool, one for flowers and the other for vegetables. Surrounding woods contrasted with the openness of the grounds around the house.
Persons associated with the garden include Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1970-1975); and Gustav H. and Jane Crowley Koven (former owners, ca. 1960-2005).
