Place:
Warrenton Country School (Warrenton, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Fauquier County -- Warrenton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes articles and 7 reference prints of the digital images.
General:
Warrenton Country School was a private academy for female students that operated between the years 1915 and 1950. Originally the site was a 13-acre parcel with a clubhouse and tennis court. By the time the site was sold it had grown to 16.5 acres through the additions of small land purchases. There were eleven buildings described as having characteristics of Tudor revival, Colonial revival, Craftsman and French eclectic styles. Boston landscape architect Bradford Williams was engaged to design the landscape, and the owner and headmistress of the school was a gardening enthusiast. The grounds included borders with boxwood, daisies and roses, a small stone cottage, probably a staff member's residence, with clipped tree standards and window boxes, and ornate cast iron furniture in the grape pattern. A waterway could have been the Rappahannock River or a creek in the Potomac River watershed. The grounds were open to the public during the school's operational years, but the property was closed after it was sold to the federal government and became a CIA campus.
Students at the school were required to speak in French and ride horses. The school's logo was a cartoon figure in a hooded cape known as Le Capuchon. A student was photographed as Le Capuchon and the community has been trying to uncover her identity.
Persons associated with the garden include: Lea Marie Bouligny (former owner, 1907-1950); Bradford Williams (landscape architect, 1930-1935).
