Manchester -- Turkey Hill Farm

Provenance:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
United States of America -- Vermont -- Bennington County -- Manchester
Turkey Hill Farm (Manchester, Vermont)
Scope and Contents:
55 digital images (2019) and 1 file folder with a photocopy of cover art of this farm for a 1925 Country Life magazine.
General:
In the 1930's the owners of a farmhouse originally built in 1849 installed gardens around the house including a sunken rose garden, perennial borders, a cutting garden, and a formal terrace with a spring-fed fountain. These gardens were maintained by three generations of the Childs family and by the current owner when the 15-acre property was purchased in 1998. In 2005 a five-acre pasture was developed as a sculpture garden with contemporary works of art and complementary plantings. A dry stream bed (arroyo) that cuts through the property was turned into another garden, planted with iris, Japanese primrose, cranesbill and hosta. Between 2012 and 2015 a woodlands garden with a rustic pergola and hexagonal gazebo and a Japanese garden with a pagoda, French Art Deco gate and arched bridge were designed and installed. Some of the original perennial borders were updated with flowers in bolder colors but antique apple trees, another pergola with benches underneath for appreciating the views, a cider press, and outbuildings including a stone spring house have been preserved. A corn crib was converted into a guest cottage; a larger guest house near the main house has linear hedges and flower beds as well as a reflecting pool on the axis that leads to a sculpture.

The stone walls and hedges are meticulous, lawns are mowed in the crisscrossing pattern, and narrow brick paths have been set into wider mowed grass walkways. Clipped hedges with stone walls or artefacts highlight long views of these grounds toward distant mountains. There are two fenced vegetable gardens and a greenhouse. A large pond has a pond house nearby as well as a small sand beach. The garden has been included in tours sponsored by the Nature Conservancy and used by non-profit organizations for fund raising events. The owner is interested in preserving the property as a public space.

Persons associated with the garden include: F. Nelson and Florence Doubleday (former owners, -1931); Lowrie and Hortense Childs (former owners, 1931-1944); Charles S. and Helen Childs (former owners, 1944-1976); Charles (Pete) and Jane Childs (former owners, 1976-1998); Sylvia and Stanley Stroup (owners, 1998-2017); Stanley Stroup (owners, 2017-); Hortense Childs (house gardens designer, 1930's); North Hill Garden Design (sculpture garden and woodland garden designers, 2008 and 2007-2012); Ray Smith (Japanese garden designer, 2013); Sugar Rock Landscape (hardscape construction, 2008-2014); Janette Morrison and Ernie Dibble (gardeners, 1998- ); David Tamych (sculptor); Rita Dee (sculptor); Richard Erdman (sculptor); Phil Thorne (sculptor); Roger Di Taranto (sculptor); Thomas Ostenberg (sculptor); Mark Chatterley (sculptor); Hans Van de Bovencamp (sculptor); Peter Woytuk (sculptor); George Sherwood (sculptor); Curt Brill (sculptor); Royden Mills (sculptor).

Summary:
This collection consists of a scrapbook, "To Europe By Air," assembled by railroad executive William J. Eck to document his trip June 28 to July 4, 1939, on Pan American Airways' (PAA) first transatlantic passenger flight on the Boeing Model 314 Clipper "Dixie Clipper" flying boat and containing information on its crew, passengers, and ports of call.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of a scrapbook, "To Europe By Air," assembled by William J. Eck to document his trip on Pan American Airways' (PAA) first transatlantic passenger flight, and containing information on the Boeing Model 314 Clipper "Dixie Clipper" (r/n NC-18605) flying boat and its crew, passengers, and ports of call. The scrapbook is particularly rich in ephemera, with many illustrations trimmed from brochures used to embellish the black paper album pages. Contents include ephemera from the Pennsylvania Railroad (on which Eck started and ended his trip from his home in Washington, D. C.), Pan American Airways (PAA), Air France, Hotel Aviz (Lisbon), Splendide Hotel (Marseille), Hotel Plaza-Athenée (Paris), and various tourist sites; photographs; telegrams; greeting cards; maps; menus; post cards; postage stamps; a first day cover; newspaper clippings (predominantly in English, but also in Portuguese and French); PAA receipts and press releases; copy photographs of Eck's PAA tickets, ticket folder, and baggage claim check; photographs of commemorative cigarette cases presented to Eck and PAA pilot R. O. D. Sullivan; and clippings and ephemera relating fellow passengers' stories: Russell Sabor, James McVittie (who continued on to Chicago immediately after landing in New York on the return trip), Gwladys Whitney (Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney), Anne Lyon Haight (Mrs. Sherman Post Haight, who also flew aboard the Clipper that inaugurated the mail route between North and South America in 1931). Also included is a transcript of interviews with the passengers recorded on board the "Dixie Clipper" during the eastbound flight: Russell Sabor, William J. Eck, Mrs. Sherman Haight, Captain Torkild Rieber, Clara Adams, C. V. Whitney, Mrs. Juan Trippe, Mr. and Mrs. Graham B. Grosvenor, Mr. and Mrs. E. O. McDonnell, Roger Lapham, James McVittie, and Louis Gimbel; and on the westbound flight: J. Carroll Cone (Manager of the Atlantic Division of Pan American Airways Company).
Arrangement:
The scrapbook is arranged chronologically.
Biographical / Historical:
William John Eck (1876-1957) graduated from Iowa State University in 1895 with a degree in electrical engineering and went to work in the telephone industry. In 1898, at the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, Eck joined the United States Army and was sent to the Philippines; after a year Eck transferred to the U.S. Quartermaster Department and spent his next three years at sea, eventually making a trip around the world. After leaving the Army, Eck switched to the railroad business, joining the Southern Railway in 1905. Over time, travel—particularly air travel—became a serious hobby for Eck, and by the early 1930s, he had become a pioneer passenger on several early airline routes. In 1931, after chatting to Pan American Airways (PAA) pilots on a flight to Santiago, Chile, Eck contacted PAA to apply for a ticket on PAA's first transatlantic passenger flight, whenever that might occur. Eight years later, Eck was delighted to be contacted by PAA with the news that he had been designated Passenger No. 1 on the historic flight, departing Port Washington, New York, on Wednesday, June 28, 1939, aboard the Boeing Model 314 "Dixie Clipper." The flight, carrying 22 passengers, was made via Horta, Azores, with an overnight stay at Lisbon, Portugal, on June 29, finishing at Marseille, France, on June 30. Eck continued on to Paris via a land-based Air France flight. Eck and many of the outbound passengers were also on the return flight of the "Dixie Clipper," departing Marseilles on Sunday, July 2, and following the same route to return to New York on Tuesday, July 4, 1939. At the time of the flight Eck, a resident of Washington, D. C., was Assistant to the Vice President, Southern Railway Company. The newspapers noted that Eck, a widower who had recently married his second wife, Emily Magdalene Kleb, three months earlier on March 20, 1939, was unable to take her along on the flight as he had only the single ticket bought well before their marriage.
