Pittsburgh -- Plum Hill

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Plum Hill (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Allegheny County -- Pittsburgh
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 23 digital images. The folder includes worksheets, historical and biographical information, and images.
General:
The 4.55 acre property with fields on rolling hills and surrounding woodlands was part of a plat given as remuneration to a Revolutionary War veteran in 1786. Later settlers built a small farmhouse circa 1897 and established prosperous orchards of apple, pear and plum trees; some of those trees still survive. The first gardens planted by the current owners about 50 years ago were flower and herb gardens around the farmhouse which is sited near the front of the property, and has since been renovated and enlarged. Since a hill rose directly behind the house it was carved out and supported with local stone to open up space for a large bluestone patio with an outdoor fireplace that is used year round. A dedicated vegetable garden is uphill from the house in the sunniest original field and orchard. A stone-bordered recirculating pond was added and a woodland garden planted. Old farm gates separate the fields from the gardens hidden behind the farmhouse. Adirondack chairs are placed in the fields for resting and bird watching. Both woodlands and fields provide habitat for wildlife, songbirds, butterflies and beneficial pollinators, and herbicides and pesticides are never used. Due to succession planting there is color and texture throughout the year.
Upon entering the property juniper, hemlock, white pine, rhododendron, boxwood and Allegheny viburnum line the driveway. Spring bulbs and blooms include columbine, daffodils and lungwort, followed in summer by St. John's-wort, clematis and peonies, then roses and verbena followed by autumn clematis on the rock retaining wall with wisteria growing over the garage entrance. A 75-year-old hedge comprised of lilac, privet and mock orange shields the property from the road. A gate opens to a field and woodlands of river birch, catalpa, wild cherry, tulip poplar and cucumber magnolia, with spring ephemerals, wildflowers and flame azaleas bordering the paths. Connecting the highs and lows of the fields and gardens is the fish pond, also home to frogs and water plants including lilies that bloom all summer. Plum Hill is known for its collection of herbs which grow amongst all the flowering perennials, vines, self-sowing annuals and shrubs, and for the owners' dedication to maintaining a sustainable environment for plants and animals.
Persons associated with the garden include Vincent M. Pelosi (land grant owner, 1786- ); Robert McPhilamy and family (former owners, 1831- ); Agnes and William Milligan (former owners, 1844- ); William Brown and family (former owners, 1848- ); Emma and John Bonshire (former owners, 1903- ); Laura and Thomas A. Robinson and family (former owners, 1928- ); D. Hageman (former owner, 1960); Phyllis and William Wilmot (former owners, 1962-1968); Anthony J. Stillson (1938-2016) (architect, 1978, 2012); Edward Anderson Nursery (horticulturist, landscaper, 1970-1998); Friday's Horticultural Landscaping (horticulturist, designer, landscape,(2008-2012); Lindsay Bond Totten (horticulturist, designer, 2013); Marion G.

Scope and Contents:

General:
Located in a retirement community, this small garden is comprised of three hundred square feet of gardens designed for a townhouse. The 10 by 10 foot front garden has low maintenance evergreens including a camellia, low hollies, ground cover, ivy, mondo grass, ferns and hardy cyclamens with a piece of local schist as a feature. The garden at the rear is more extensive and includes a terrace garden with container plants that is four feet deep and eight and one-half inches long, wrought iron outdoor furniture and a custom built shed. A climbing Gold Flame honeysuckle with orange flowers covers the roof of the shed in summer and attracts hummingbirds. A flagstone path divides the garden beyond a low sitting wall into two planting beds that are filled with flowering trees and shrubs including hydrangea and clematis, boxwood used as an edging, herbs and perennials. Ornaments include a rabbit weathervane, whimsical birdhouses and a bird feeding platform.
Glass windows and a glass siding door enhance bird watching from inside the townhouse. The crab apple and magnolia trees in the back garden and the shrubs create a private space for the owners.
Persons associated with the garden include Alice Farley (garden designer, 2003); Leslie Purple (garden designer, 2003).

Descriptive Entry:
These records are the official minutes of the Board. They are compiled at the direction of the Secretary of the Smithsonian, who is also secretary to the Board, after approval by the Regents' Executive Committee and by the Regents themselves. The minutes are edited, not a verbatim account of proceedings. For reasons unknown, there are no manuscript minutes for the period from 1857 through 1890; and researchers must rely on printed minutes published in the Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution instead. Minutes are transferred regularly from the Secretary's Office to the Archives. Minutes less than 15 years old are closed to researchers. Indexes exist for the period from 1907 to 1946 and can be useful.
Historical Note:
The Smithsonian Institution was created by authority of an Act of Congress approved August 10, 1846. The Act entrusted direction of the Smithsonian to a body called the Establishment, composed of the President; the Vice President; the Chief Justice of the United States; the secretaries of State, War, Navy, Interior, and Agriculture; the Attorney General; and the Postmaster General. In fact, however, the Establishment last met in 1877, and control of the Smithsonian has always been exercised by its Board of Regents. The membership of the Regents consists of the Vice President and the Chief Justice of the United States; three members each of the Senate and House of Representatives; two citizens of the District of Columbia; and seven citizens of the several states, no two from the same state. (Prior to 1970 the category of Citizen Regents not residents of Washington consisted of four members). By custom the Chief Justice is Chancellor. The office was at first held by the Vice President. However, when Millard Fillmore succeeded to the presidency on the death of Zachary Taylor in 1851, Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney was chosen in his stead. The office has always been filled by the Chief Justice since that time.

The Regents of the Smithsonian have included distinguished Americans from many walks of life. Ex officio members (Vice President) have been: Spiro T. Agnew, Chester A. Arthur, Allen W. Barkley, John C. Breckenridge, George Bush, Schuyler Colfax, Calvin Coolidge, Charles Curtis, George M. Dallas, Charles G. Dawes, Charles W. Fairbanks, Millard Fillmore, Gerald R. Ford, John N.
