Notes:
Work on this Greenwich estate was begun while Thomas W. Sears was practicing in Providence, Rhode Island. It apparently continued after his move to Philadelphia because his new firm, Sears & Wendell, received equal credit on the plan shown in CT080002. Design features included perennial and rose gardens, an orchard, a vegetable garden, a greenhouse with heating plant, a tennis court, and extensive lawns and trees. The photograph album is dated March 1913, and includes 40 black and white snapshot images of the house and grounds, as well as a faded print of the same perspective drawing featured in CT080001.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Milton Hodgens (former owners, circa 1910-1920); Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect, circa 1910-1913); and Sears & Wendell (landscape architects, circa 1913-1915).
