Hodgens Garden (Greenwich, Connecticut)
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).
