Notes:
At the northwest corner of Prospect and High Streets, this Tudor Revival house was on a significantly larger piece of property. Mrs. Moore, who joined the Summit Garden Club in 1925, was generous in sharing her garden on garden tours. The house burned down in the 1950's (?) and was replaced by a large Colonial Revival . Some of the massive rhododendrons and mature trees may have been remnants of the earlier landscape. A swimming pool is currently located behind the house.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. Livingston P. and Mrs. Helen Moore.
