Summary:
This collection contains over 37,000 35mm slides, 3,000 glass lantern slides and garden files that may include descriptive information, photocopied articles (from journals, newspapers, or books), planting lists, correspondence, brochures, landscape plans and drawings. Garden files were compiled by Garden Club of America (GCA) members for most of the gardens included in the collection. Some gardens have been photographed over the course of several decades; others only have images from a single point in time. In addition to images of American gardens, there are glass lantern slides of the New York Flower Show (1941-1951) and trips that GCA members took to other countries, including Mexico (1937), Italy, Spain, Japan (1935), France (1936), England (1929), and Scotland.

A number of the slides are copies of historic images from outside repositories including horticultural and historical societies or from horticultural books and publications. The GCA made a concerted effort in the mid-1980s to acquire these images in order to increase its documentation of American garden history. Because of copyright considerations, use of these particular images may be restricted.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Garden Club of America was established in 1913 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when the Garden Club of Philadelphia and eleven other garden clubs met to create a national garden club. Its purpose is to foster the knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and gardening and conservation efforts. The GCA was incorporated in Delaware in 1923, with its headquarters established in New York City. Today, local clubs are organized under twelve regional zones. The GCA continues its tradition of hosting flower shows and publishing material related to gardening in the United States.

The GCA's glass lantern slides were used by The GCA for presentations and lectures about notable gardens throughout the United States dating back to colonial times. An effort was made in the late 1980s, in preparation of the 75th anniversary of the Garden Club of America's founding, to collect the disbursed slides. These slides were to eventually form the Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. The informational value of this collection is extensive since a number of images of the more than 4,500 gardens represented show garden designs that have changed over time or no longer exist. While the majority of images document a range of designed upper and upper-middle class gardens throughout the U.S., the scope of the collection is expanding as volunteers photograph and document contemporary gardens including community and vernacular gardens.

The gardens illustrate the design work of dozens of landscape architects including Marian Coffin, Beatrix Farrand, Lawrence Halprin, Hare & Hare, Umberto Innocenti, Gertrude Jekyll, Jens Jensen, Warren Manning, the Olmsted Brothers, Charles Platt, Ellen Biddle Shipman, and Fletcher Steele. Because of their proximity to the gardens, works of notable architects and sculptors may also be featured in the images.

Historical Note:
On June 3rd, 1929, ninety delegates from the Garden Club of America (GCA) arrived in London for a thirteen-day "pilgrimage" throughout England. The trip was organized by the English-Speaking Union, and its headquarters at the Dartmouth House in London was the first stop for the GCA members. The members toured collectively for the first nine days, visiting the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Hampton Court Palace; and the Royal Horticulural Society's Gardens, as well as gardens in Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Sussex, and Kent. In addition to garden visits, the GCA delegates were invited to the Iris Society flower exhibition held at the Royal Horticultural Society, and attended lectures on a variety of garden topics.

On June 12th, delegates divided into five groups and went their separate ways. Departing from Sulgrave, Northamptonshire, groups A and B went to Warwickshire, C and D to Oxford, and group E to Banbury. Each group had a full three days visiting surrounding estates and notable gardens. They all returned to London on June 15th for the last days of the trip. These final days included laying a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Westminster Abbey, formal entertainments at the home of Lady Hudson in Sussex, and a departure dinner led by the Marquess of Reading.

Druim Moir Formal Garden

See also the Eleanor Weller Reade Collection.
The Druim Moir Formal Garden was built in 1921 in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Henry Howard Houston, a prominent Pennsylvania Railroad entrepreneur, constructed the Scottish baronial castle in 1886 on a 50-acre parcel on one of the highest points in the city. He named his home Drium Moir, which means "high ridge" in Gaelic. The castle was built with 54 rooms and a five-story tower. A dower home, Brinkwood, was also built on the property as a wedding present for Houston's second son, Samuel F. Houston. Both Druim Moir and Brinkwood were designed by the architectural firm G.W. and W.D. Hewitt, and were listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

In 1921, as a distraction from the tragedy of their son killed in action in World War I, Charlotte Houston commissioned a formal garden. It was designed by architect Robert Rodes McGoodwin, who planned a seven-level terrace axis, a bowling green, and a sunken garden below. Wrought iron gates connect each of the rooms, constructed by metalworker Samuel Yellin. The garden rooms were dug out of the slopes by returning World War I veterans.

In the 1990s, new boxwoods were planted as borders for the perennial beds, however the structure of the garden has not changed since 1921. Druim Moir is known for the architectural beauty of its walls made of local stone, terraces, and handcrafted ironworks. Many shrubs and trees from the original garden continue to thrive nearly a century after the garden's establishment. Currently, the formal garden is preserved by the Druim Moir Homeowners' Association in accordance with the original plan prepared by Robert Rodes McGoodwin. A team of part time gardeners, arborists, and community volunteers cultivate the gardens under the direction of three residents.

Persons associated with the garden include: Henry Howard Houston and Samuel F. Houston (former owners, 1886-1952); Edith Houston Brown and the Houston Foundation (former owners, 1953-1980); Druim Moir Corporation, Developer and Sales Agent (former owner, 1980); Druim Moir Homeowners' Association (current owner, 1981-), G.W. and W.D. Hewitt (architects, 1886) Robert Rodes McGoodwin (architect, 1921- 1922); Samuel Yellin (iron worker, 1921-1922), Charles Kraut (head gardener), Naomi Breman (garden manager, 2017-).

United States of America -- Ohio -- Cuyahoga County -- Broadview Heights
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, and a write-up of the garden.
General:
Ruth & Don's half-acre garden surrounds the old farmhouse on their 36-acre Braemar Farm property, which was established in 1853. The garden was started in 1963 with the decision to maintain the original farmland and woodlands guided by a plan from the U.S. Soil Conservation Service (now the Natural Resources Conservation Service). Additional acres of conifers and other trees were planted, old diseased weeping willow trees were removed, low sandstone walls and foundation plantings were added, and three additions were made to the house. In 1989 the owners worked with The Connelly Landscaping Company to add structure to the garden by using hardscaping made of brick, sandstone found on the property, and wood to define garden rooms, accommodate sloping terrain, and create spaces for outdoor living. A small stone pond houses frogs and goldfish, an old millstone is at the center of an herb garden, and a large stone well cover found on the property is used as a landing for a set of stairs.
The garden's style is informal English with three deep borders planted with perennials, foliage, and grasses, shrubs and trees. There is a vegetable garden on the edge of the agricultural sector, near one of the two old barns on the property. The ornamental plants provide continuous color throughout the growing season, views from every window of the house, and meet the owners' desire to reduce maintenance. The owner is a trustee of the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Alfred and Ann Wiltshire and members of the Wiltshire family (former owners, 1853 - 1949); Lester and Jesse Hanck (former owners, 1949 - 1963); Ed Connelly, The Connelly Landscaping Company (landscape designer, circa 1990).
