General:
Originally called Hartwood Farm, this 629 acre property (originally 480 acres) was established in 1927 and owned by Mr. and Mrs. John Wheeler Lawrence. The Tudor style house with Gothic influences was designed by Alfred Hopkins. Mary Flynn Lawrence, wife of John Wheeler, was instrumental in the development of the gardens on the property including a formal garden and arboretum. The driveways, lawns and original formal gardens were designed by Ralph Griswold of Nicolet & Griswold Inc of Pittsburgh. Griswold's plan was not fully implemented. An additional survey and design was completed by two more landscape architects until 1938 when Rose Greely of Washington, DC was hired to bring the property into a unified plan. In the 1930s, Mrs. Lawrence had over 93,000 pine tree seedlings.
Persons associated with the garden include Alfred Hopkins (architect, 1927-1929), Ezra Stiles (landscape architect, 1930s), Rose Greely (landscape architect, 1930s), Agnes Selkirk Clark (landscape architect, 1930s), Stanley Preston (gardener, 1947-1960), Dave Weslie (gardener, 1950s), John Wheeler Lawrence and Mary Flynn Lawrence (former owners,1924), Allegheny County (current owner, 1969-present).
The property was opened to the public in 1976.

With the first living floor raised to a height of 14 feet, terraces around the front and two walled levels at the rear were created diminished the height of the house. The new house included a circular driveway and a large border garden in the front planted with many Florida-friendly and native plant material including carissa, hibiscus, pittosporum, Indian Hawthorne and euphorbia. Red cedar trees (juniperus) and palms were planted alongside two old Ficus trees and sea grape lined the front of the property on both sides facing the road.
A Seaside Gulf Garden includes a butterfly garden, a bayou with surrounding red and black mangroves, and many different types of palm trees including Cabbage, Areca and others. There are a few exotic species of plants on the property, such as the bird of paradise, Japanese Privet, and hibiscus shrub. The garden has a shell ground cover and no lawn.

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, plans, financial documents, correspondence, plant lists, copies and photocopies of articles featuring the garden, and other information.
General:
Noted landscape architect Rose Greely did the original design for this garden, while Perry Wheeler undertook extensive remodeling beginning in the early 1950s. A typical small Georgetown garden only 48 feet wide, its privacy was assured by a wisteria-topped brick wall, shade trees, and shrubs around its borders. The plan divided the area into several distinct sections, including a shade terrace, living terrace, lawn, lawn terrace, and even a small circular formal vegetable and herb garden. A fountain adjacent to the living terrace provided white noise to mask the sounds of the urban setting. The Wheeler portion of the series includes not only visual images but plans, financial records, and other documentation. Greely's architectural drawings and papers are housed in Special Collections at the University of Virginia Library, Charlottesville, Virginia.
Persons associated with the garden include Rose Greely (landscape architect, circa 1920-1940); Perry H. Wheeler (landscape architect, circa 1951-1964); Dr. Franklin L. Stroud (former owner, 1976-2008); Paul B. and Laura T. Magnuson (former owners, 1946-1974); Frances Shoemaker (former owner); and Fred W. Jones (former owner).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of plans.
General:
The original landscape was designed by landscape architect Thomas M. Desmond in the 1920's when the Federal-style brick house was built on a two-thirds acre lot in a newly developed neighborhood. Remaining features from the early gardens include a sugar maple tree in front of the house, a weeping beech at the side near the sun porch, curving beds along the back and side perimeters with mixed conifers, and winding paths of stepping stones. A venerable Japanese maple next to the original bluestone patio was pruned to reveal its branching structure, wisteria was removed from the house, and there are plans to remove rhododendron that have grown unattractive. Desmond's original planting plan had five fruit trees placed around the back lawn, a cutting salad garden, and a service area outside the laundry room, now converted to a breakfast room that opens to a new second patio. A curved drive in front of the house that connects to the original driveway leading to the garage was built in the 1980's.
From the driveway the garden is entered through an archway. The expanse of back lawn is used for games and entertaining and to display a stainless steel sculpture "Monogenesis #1" by Peter Diepenbrock. A curving stone wall in one corner is the backdrop to a planted bed and containers. The western bed of evergreens also has flowers planted on either side of the path of stepping stones.
In 1929 the architect Clifton C. West wrote articles for the Hartford Courant newspaper called "Your Prospective Home" with recommendations for designing houses and gardens that match the design of this house.
Persons associated with the garden include Samuel Gross (former owner, 1923-1938); Elbridge M. Beecher (former owner, 1938- ); James A. and Karen P. Grigsby (former owners, dates unknown); Clifton C. West (architect, 1923); Thomas M. Desmond (1884-1950) (landscape architect, 1924); Edward Cape/Wilhelm Associates (architectural renovations drawings, 1985); Peter Diepenbrock (sculptor, 2002).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, narrative descriptions of slides, garden map, and copies of architectural drawings.
General:
The California property is situated on 1 ½ acres overlooking the San Gabriel Mountains. The 'California Bungalow' house, a shingle-clad wooden house, was designed in 1909 by the Greene Brothers, Charles Sumner and Henry Mather Greene. The planting plans of the grounds were established in 1969 by a local garden designer. The designer introduced Vinca major as the primary ground cover in the arroyo and selected trees such as camphors, maples, flowering peaches, tabebuias, eucalyptus, crape myrtle, pittosporums, jacarandas, Liquidambar, and Albizia julibrissin to place around the property. The landscape design was enhanced by the addition of outdoor entertaining areas and gardens in 1989. Brick is an important element on the property. There are brick stanchions at either side of the west end of the driveway, the foundation of the house and related planter boxes and platforms are made of brick. Some of the brick is 'clinker' brick -- an especially hard-fired, misshapen brick the Greene Brothers used for its unique character.
Persons and organizations associated with the property: Margaret Spinks (former owner, 1909); Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz (former owners); Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene (architects, 1909); John Catlin (landscape architect, 1969); Isabelle Greene (landscape architect, 1989)
