Reynolda Gardens (Winston-Salem, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Forsyth -- Winston-Salem
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes photocopies of articles, images, transcript of a lecture and thesis by Sherold D. Hollingsworth, brochures, and other information.
General:
Reynolda was the county house estate of the founder of R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Robert Joshua Reynolds, and his wife, Katharine Smith Reynolds, comprising nearly 1,100 acres that included a 38,000 square foot house built for them by architect Charles Barton Keen. Reynolda was primarily conceived by Katharine Reynolds to include a family home with gardens, a village within the estate that housed the twenty families that worked on the self-contained estate, a 350-acre dairy, grain and vegetable farm, a 19-acre golf course with grazing sheep, and woodlands with thousands of daffodils. Before the house and formal gardens were built, Lord and Burnham constructed commercial greenhouses and a large glass conservatory on the property in 1913. Mrs. Reynolds decided to site a four-acre formal garden next to the greenhouses, near the public road, for the benefit of passersby. The first garden designers on the estate were Miller and Buckenham, and then Thomas Sears was brought in to design the viewable greenhouse garden, as well as gardens at the house and boathouse. The boathouse was sited beside the 16-acre artificial Lake Katharine created by Miller and Buckenham's stone-faced dam. The lake has since partially filled with silt and become a wetlands habitat.
Thomas Sears' 1917 formal greenhouse garden was divided into two rectangles, an approximately two-acre formal rose and perennial garden, and next to it another two-acre garden for fruit, flowers and vegetables. Grass panels that divided and surrounded the formal gardens were known as the sunken garden. The original rose garden was divided into four parterres, two planted with roses, one for blue and yellow flowers and the last for pink and white flowers. There were grass panels between the parterres with a double row of Japanese cedar trees on the horizontal axis. Rows of Japanese weeping cherry trees and southern magnolias were planted as a perimeter; later the trees shaded the rose garden to the extent that it had to be replanted when the garden was restored in 1997. Each axis of the two formal gardens ended in an attractive terminus, a feature of many of Sears' designs. These included pergolas and Japanese-styled teahouses for Katharine Reynolds, who wanted to include trees and features from Japanese gardens. Like the rose garden, the design of the fruit and vegetable garden was geometric with a central feature. At the time of its restoration, a large section of this garden was replanted with All-America selection roses, other flowers and herbs.
In the 1930's daughter Mary Reynolds Babcock and her stockbroker husband Charles Babcock bought her siblings' shares in the house and rehired Thomas Sears to redesign the gardens. Renovations to the house included moving the original central entrance to the side of the house, and new gardens were needed in front. A tulip and chrysanthemum garden was designed, with pink, white, blue and purple tulips and forget-me-nots complementing the colors of the new flagstone terrace. Summer flowers included heliotrope, plumbago, salvia, nicotiana, snapdragons and annual phlox, although heliotrope did not flourish in hot weather. Red, yellow, bronze, copper and terra cotta chrysanthemums were planted in autumn. Sears suggested poinsettias, camellias, chrysanthemums, gardenias and begonia semperflorens for a winter garden, but they were not winter hardy and were used for holiday decorations inside the house. Sears also designed a study garden in 1916, which comprises a patio with a recessed pool, stone benches and extensive plantings of rhododendrons and other flowering shrubs, a canopy of flowering magnolias, dogwood and crape myrtles, and an understory of ground covers, lilies, hosta, ferns and daffodils.
Reynolda is now the Reynolda House Museum of American Art. The gardens were donated to Wake Forest University in the 1960's by the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation.
Persons associated with this property include R.J. (Robert Joshua) Reynolds (c. 1850-1918) and Katharine Smith Reynolds Johnston (1880-1924) (former owners, 1909-1924); Mary Reynolds Babcock and Charles Babcock (former owners, 1935-1953); Wake Forest College, later University (owner beginning in 1958); Louis L. Miller and Horatio R. Buckenham (landscape designers, 1911-1913); Thomas Warren Sears (1880-1965) (landscape architect 1915-1917, 1930s); Robert Conrad (horticulturalist, c. 1910-1960); Charles Barton Keen (architect, 1912-1917).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan.
General:
This .75-acre garden site was the Van Sweringen Land Company's lot #27 in the planned community of Shaker Heights, Ohio. Built for Mr. Wilbur Brooks in 1927, the house was designed by noted architect Monroe Copper (Dunn & Copper) and the original site plan was produced by Alexander & Strong, a well-known firm of landscape architects and town planners. The lily pool at the north end of the lot (large for Shaker Heights lots) was built in 1927. It holds approximately 2,750 gallons of water. Space was set aside on the eastern side of the property for flower borders, edged by hedges and divided by a walk. No plant material was specified on the blueprint. In 1937, Margaret Eaglesfield Bell produced a detailed blueprint for an evergreen, perennial and rose garden for the second owner, Mrs. Chester Brooks. Little is known about Bell, although she may have lived in Shaker Heights. Bell's blueprint replaced the original Alexander & Strong design. The spaces were divided into a series of three "rooms," separated by privet hedges, and bisected by a turf path set with stepping stones. The evergreen garden contained azalea, deutzia, and spring bulbs. The perennial bed combined such perennials as anemone, aquilegia, Arabis alpina, Dicentra spectabilis, eupatorium, lilies, iris, and peonies, among others. Several annuals such as ageratum and pansies were suggested as well. The color scheme was predominantly purple, pink and white. The formal rose garden contained hybrid teas bordered by teucrium, interplanted with spring bulbs. Each quadrant of the garden contained two Viburnum carlesi and a deutzia. In the center, a bird bath was underplanted with English ivy.
At the time the current owners purchased the house in 1988, the garden had undergone several decades of neglect. The perennial bed had been plowed under, and was adjacent to several large elms which shaded the area extensively. The rose garden shape remained, as did the ivy bed in the center. Only one rose bush remained. The evergreen garden was essentially a mix of ivy, pachysandra and myrtle. In the center of the yard, two large, dead elm trees predominated, and in their place the owner has created a large perennial bed with the help of gardener Joseph Simonelli. The predominant color scheme is once again purple, white and pink, with iris, peonies, lilies, chelone, roses, liatris, chrysanthemum, tradescantia, columbine, phlox, amsonia, Japanese anemone, Acanthus mollis, and Acanthus spinosus among others. The lily pond has been restored to working order, and a biofilter and pump have been installed. The hemlocks surrounding the pool cut down on the necessary light, so the lilies bloom only moderately well. Future plans include restoration of the rose garden, half of which is currently a garden where the owner's children grow vegetables and experiment. Throughout the property the owner is attempting to use the same kinds of flowers that were in the Bell design, even if they are not in the same location.
Persons associated with the garden include: Wilbur Brooks (former owner, 1928-ca. 1937); Mrs. Chester K. Brooks (former owner, ca. 1937-?); Mr. and Mrs. Hancock (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Paul Fritsche (former owners); Mr. and Mrs. Roger Noall (former owners, before 1988); Alexander & Strong (landscape architects, 1927); Margaret Eaglesfield Bell (landscape architect, 1937); Dorothy W. Elliott (landscape designer, 1993); Alexander A. Apanius (landscape designer, 1995 to date); and Joseph Simonelli (gardener, 1988 to date).
