Place:
Questover (Indianapolis, Indiana)
United States of America -- Indiana -- Marion County -- Indianapolis
Scope and Contents:
The folders include a work sheet, slide view plan, and copies of Jensen design plans.
Former Title:
Vellamada.
General:
A former owner, Albert Lieber, named the property "Vellamada" and created a summer residence with hunting grounds encompassing 400 acres. Lieber, a brewery owner, commissioned his cooper smiths to build the German-style outbuildings on the property. F. D. Stalnaker later contracted Jens Jensen to design a 45 acre lot, out of the original 400, in 1922, and named this property "Questover." Jensen designed a cascading waterfall utilizing an existing spring that terminated in a reflecting pool. Near the pool, he laid out a "council ring," an area for outdoor gatherings and campfires. Jensen also included a vegetable garden and orchard. In 1956, this property was subdivided. A new residence exists near the original Lieber barns. The landscaping and gardens evolved as a compliment to the 1920s plan and material prescribed by Jensen. The Council Ring was later relocated next to the pond designed by Mark Holeman.
Persons of Organizations associated with the garden include: Albert Lieber (former owner, 1904-1920); Frank D. Stalnaker (former owner, 1920-1948); Jens Jensen (landscape architect, 1921-1923); George MacDougall (landscape architect, 1921-1923); Fritz Loonsten (landscape architect of rose garden, 1930); Gilbert S. Daniels, PhD. (gardener, plantsmen, 1983-present); Mark Holeman (landscape architect of pond and surrounds, 1989; relocation of council ring, 1999).
