Truslow Garden (Summit, New Jersey)
Located at 50 Bedford Road, and owned by Mr. and Mrs. Henry A. Truslow, the house was designed by Arthur Ware, and gardens by Brinley and Halbrook of New York City. Mrs. Truslow was also a founding member of the Summit Garden Club in 1916. The large corner lot was recently subdivided and two houses built, resulting in the portico and side porch being removed from the original house. The lives of three generations of Truslow women, including Mrs. Truslow, were portrayed by her granddaughter, the late Jane Davison, in her book, "Fall of a Doll's House," recently revised as "To Make a House a Home." Additional photographs are in the Summit Garden Club Collection.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Henry A. Truslow (former owners, circa 1910s-1920s); Arthur Ware (architect); Brinley and Halbrook (landscape architects).
The folder includes worksheets, maps and other information.
