Notes:
With design work by Nelva M. Weber, this site's key feature was a brick patio enclosed on three sides by its colonial revival house. Accented by a honey locust tree, the patio included ample outdoor seating On its open end stood a sundial and stairs climbing to a lawn, with a meadow and trees beyond. A brick walk led around the house to a lower level gated garden that appears to have featured an ornate wall fountain. Eventually one reached a boxwood bordered lawn area with an ornamental stone bench on one side. The site's spacious country setting provided numerous viewpoints across the lawns to surrounding trees and woodlands.
Persons associated with the garden include Nelva M. Weber (landscape architect, ca. 1973) and Winston Keith (former owner, ca. 1973).
