General:
The Judge Junius G. Adams house is a Tudor Revival-style residence built in 1921 in the Asheville development, Biltmore Forest. The landscape retains many of its historic features. A curvilinear driveway leads from Stuyvesant Drive to the rear of the house and terminates in a circle. Several mature oak trees stand in the front yeard. A dense band of trees wraps along the east side of the property, providing a visual buffer from passing traffic ; and the rear of the property is also heavily forested. Areas around the main house--the gardener's residence and the pool house--are landscaped with a variety of rhododendrons, mountain laurels, azaleas, forsythias, and boxwoods. Along the west side of the pool house is a terrace with flowerbeds.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Judge Junius Adams (former owner, 1921-1933); Burnham S. Colburn (former owner, 1933-1938); Daniel and Eleanor McCarthy (former owners, 1933-1979); Peter Hall (former owner, 1980-1998); Charles N. Parker (architect, 1921); and Anthony Loid (architect of renovations, 1940).

Place:
78 Main Street (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, garden plans, a description of the garden by Julie Jordin, a tree and shrub list, and detailed historical information (including photocopies of public documents) about the property.
General:
The 1834 Charles Coffin house is the site of this one-third acre garden in the center of Nantucket town. Surrounded by mature maple and elm trees that protect it from the island's harsh climate extremes, the garden features a formal front yard and a backyard that includes several garden "rooms." The front yard is enclosed by the original wheat sheaf fence found in the attic during a restoration, while the plant material is composed primarily of trimmed boxwood hedges in keeping with Coffin's conservative Quaker tradition. The backyard includes a large cutting garden on the west side of the house, while established hydrangeas, azaleas, rhododendrons, and hostas provide a border for the lawn and a backdrop for the pond. A period sunken garden features two 19th-century statues flanking the steps and opposing camelback sofas created out of boxwood. A twisted steel gazebo hides underneath wisteria in a shady back corner.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Charles Coffin (former owner, ca. 1830s); Paul Faulkner "Chip" Callaway and Callaway & Associates (landscape architects, 2000-2002); and Julie Jordin and The Garden Design Co. (landscape designers, 2004-2006).

Cedar Rapids -- Pleasant Hill

Designer:
Wood, Grant, 1891-1942  Search this
Provenance:
Cedar Rapids Garden Club  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Pleasant Hill (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn County -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folders include a worksheet, a garden plan, a detailed narrative description of the property and garden, a plant list, geological survey, copies of articles on Grant Wood, and photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
The gardens at Pleasant Hill were inspired by the early architecture of the area and the designs of regionalist painter, Grant Wood. The residence was constructed in 1932 to reflect the architectural history of Iowa, using original structral elements from other houses and antique furniture. On December 20, 1989, the home was designated as a National Historic Site. At the entrance to the garden, Grant Wood designed a grape arbor. Stones from a quarry near Stone City, Iowa and a grist mill stone were incorporated into garden seats. The owner chose species of flowers and trees that are either indigenous to the zone or have proven successful through the harsh Iowa winters, producing a continuous show of color in summer, spring, and fall.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: Bruce McKay (architect, designer, builder, 1932-?); Grant Wood (artist, 1933); and Mrs. E. W. Spence (landscape architect).
Related Materials:
Pleasant Hill related holdings consist of 2 folders (4 35 mm. slides)
