Biographical Note:
Thomas Prichard Rossiter (1818-1871) was born in New Haven, Connecticut. He first learned painting as an apprentice for a Mr. John Boyd, and also studied with Nathaniel Jocelyn. In 1838 he exhibited two paintings at the National Academy of Design, and in 1939 moved to New York City and opened a studio.

In 1840, Rossiter traveled to Europe with Asher B. Durand, John Kensett, and John Casilaer, and while there visited Rome with Thomas Cole. He decided to stay in Italy until 1846 when he moved to New York City and shared a studio with Kensett and Louis Lang. During this period he relied on portrait painting for his income, but also painted historical and religious paintings.

In 1851 Rossiter married Anna Ehrick Parmly and they toured Europe in 1853. They settled in Paris where Anna gave birth to twins Ehrick Kensett and Charlotte. Rossiter exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1855. Anna died shortly after the birth of their daughter Anna, and the family moved back to New York.

For a brief period of time Rossiter had an art gallery, exhibiting his work and the work of his friends. In 1860 he married Mary (Mollie) Sterling and moved his family to Cold Spring, New York on the Hudson River. He continued to paint portraits, historical, and religious paintings, and exhibited at the National Academy of Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, until his death in 1871.

Ehrick Kensett Rossiter (1854-1941), named after his father's friend John Frederick Kensett, attended Cornell University and became an architect in New York as part of the firm Rossiter & Muller. He was a member of the Architectural League, United States Public Architects' League, and trustee of the American Fine Arts Society. In 1877 he married Mary Heath and they had three sons and a daughter. Their daughter Edith Rossiter Bevan was a historian and avid collector of historical autographs.

Built ca. 1730, Stratford Hall was home to the Lee family until the early 1800s. Relatives subsequently bought and lived in the property until the turn-of-the-century when the Robert E.

They restored a flat area to a terraced garden enclosed by brick walls. Parterres are outlined with English Box. The West Garden, planned by Innocenti and Webel, is a utilitarian part of the garden planted with vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, and ornamental flowers. The North Vista and Nature Trail are additional parts of the estate.

General:
George Mason built Gunston Hall between 1753 and 1755. The house and gardens remained in the Mason family until the 1860s. After the Civil War ended, owners worked to restore the house and gardens which were destroyed by troops. Louis Hertle added a perola, rose garden with hybrid tea roses, and a reflecting pool. By 1934, nothing remained of the eighteenth-century garden except for the box hedge. When the Garden Club of Virginia took over the garden restoration, the pools, fountains, figures, summer house, roses, and flowering cherry trees were removed. Four parterres along the boxwood walk were planted in dwarf box. Also, two Chinese Chippendale gazebos were built on the outer corners of the lower terrace. The gardens and museum are open to the public.
Persons associated with the property include: George Mason (former owner, 1755-1792); General Robert Gibson Smith or Colonel Edward Daniels (former owner, ca. 1870); Jospeh Specht (former owner); Paul Kester (former owner, 1907-1913); Louis Hertle (former owner, 1913-1949); Commonwealth of Virginia (owner); William Buckland (architect, ca. 1753); National Society of Colonial Dames (caretakers, 1932-present); Alden Hopkins (landscape designer, ca. 1950); Glenn Brown (architect for restorations of house and grounds, ca. 1912); Garden Club of Virginia (garden designers); William and Harvey Nursery (transplanting box, 1952); and Thurman Bushrod (gardener).

General:
The Colonial Revival Newport cottage was designed by architect Ogden Codman Jr. for his niece Martha circa 1910 with gardens designed by Achille Duchêne. The 3.7-acre property is enclosed in brick walls, with historic specimen trees that predate the mansion; it is a certified Level 1 arboretum with more than 50 cultivars. There are 12 garden rooms, several follies, more than 60 monkey-themed artifacts, and numerous references to Pomona, the goddess of the orchard and abundance as well as Pomona College, the owner's alma mater. The owner describes his gardens as the narrative of himself and his family with spaces for history, celebration, storytelling and reflection. Garden rooms with water features include the American renaissance water garden with layered borders on either side of a rill, an Oriental water garden with a red Chinese Chippendale style footbridge modeled after the design of Englishman James Paine, an Arts and Crafts garden and south pool with a lotus fountain and other stylistic nods to Sir Edwin Lutyens, and another pool on the east side of the property with cabanas and a pavilion of pleasure used for family gatherings.

Features remaining from the original designs include a 5-sided lattice gazebo, an excedra in the same style as Edith Wharton's, and a pergola. A 20 -foot square tea house added in 1926 replicates the 1793 Derby summer house designed by Samuel McIntire. Additional follies and outbuildings that have been added in the 21st century include a summer house and a ground level cupola, with plans for a greenhouse/library that will be accessible to the public. The rhombic-shaped property is organized by crossing axes; the north-south axis starts at the gazebo next to the outer wall, dropping to the tea house and tea house allée with another gazebo marking a crossing point. Other garden rooms include pollarded hornbeam, a sprawling beech that shades the moss garden, a kitchen garden, and a keyhole garden. The classic formal style of structures and plantings contrasts with contemporary statues and bronzes, some of which were designed by or depict family members; one sculpture is named "The Social Contract".

Persons associated with the garden include: Martha Codman (former owner, 1907- ); Jane Pickens Langley (former owner, 1964-1992); Marcella McCormack (former owner, 1995-1999); Ogden Codman Jr. (1863-1951) (architect, 1910); Achille Duchêne (1866-1947) (landscape designer); Sidney Fiske Kimball (1888-1955) (teahouse architect, 1926); Jon-Paul (JP) Couture (garden designer/architect); Ronald Lee Fleming (garden designer, 1999- ); Horus Khut (gardener, 2014- ); Kidder Gowen (gardener, 2014- ).
