Tohickon Hill (Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania)
The natural setting of this 16 acre property that overlooks the Delaware River was featured more than a lavish garden by the 60 by 14 yard gunite swimming pool. A three-story cedar clad tower was the first construction on the vacation property and was eventually connected by a passageway to the rest of the house. Gates, fences and columns were custom-designed to complement the location. Large stone steps excavated from the pool's site were used in the multiple walkways from the house to the pool and garden which were at a higher elevation.
Persons associated with the garden include A. Billie Cohen (garden designer, 1987-1989); Jeffrey Cayle (woodwork designer and builder).
The folder includes worksheets and a photocopy of an article.
