Charles City -- Westover

Place:
Westover (Charles City, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Charles City County -- Charles City
Scope and Contents:
Folders include work sheets, brochures, HABS report, and copies of articles.
General:
In 1638, Captain Thomas Paulett patented 2,000 acres, which he called "Westopher," supposedly in honor of the West brothers, the Lords Delaware. After William Byrd came into possession in 1688, he increased the property to 26,231 acres and built the first Westover dwelling ca. 1690. Byrd's son, William, began the erection of the manor-house in 1726.
A two-acre walled garden contained box borders. The central point of the gardens is the monument marking the tomb of William Byrd, II. Colonel John Selden added to the landscape by planting the row of tulip poplars. Drewery, a former owner, destroyed 3/4 of the garden wall to use for a stable. The garden was then ploughed up and then planted in vegetables. Between 1901 and 1905, the wall was rebuilt on the old foundations. Turfed walkways, crossing each other at right angles, were lined with flowers and tea roses in 1909. Mrs. Sears Ramsay planted all the trees around the "bowling green" to the north of the house. Richard Crane's daughter donated a historic preservation easement on Westover to the state in 1974 when it became a National Historic Landmark.
Persons associated with the property include: Captain Thomas Paulett (former owner, 1638); Sir John Paulett (former owner); Otho Soutcoat (former owner of part, 1665); Theodorick Bland (former owner, 1665); Theodorick and Richard Bland (former owners); William Bird (former owner, 1688); William Byrd, II (former owner); William Byrd, III. (former owner); William Carter (former owner, 1814); Mr. Douthat (former owner); Harrisons of Brandon (former owners); Colonel John Selden (former owner, 1829); Major Drewery (former owner, 1862); Mrs. Clarise Sears Ramsay (former owner, 1898); and Richard Crane (former owner, 1921).

The owner learned how to apply Asian principles to gardening from a visiting Japanese landscape designer about 20 years ago. Flowering shrubs and trees are kept to a minimum. The goal of the garden is to incorporate the Zen aesthetics of self-discipline and austerity. Two acres of moss are intersected by over 1,400 feet of winding gravel trails and an INGA strolling path. The garden features bridges, dry "waterfalls" and stonework. There are also six gates to the garden, each with its own symbolism.

General:
The property, home of Charles Wilson Peale, lies on the outskirts of Germantown. Peale developed the estate from a one hundred acre farm, laying out his garden with box-bordered walks, lilacs, summer houses, arches, and pools. William Logan Fisher bought the property, which adjoined the Fisher estate (Wakefield) and the Logan estate (Stenton), in ca. 1825. He bought it for his daughter, Sarah on her marriage to William Wister. Sarah Logan Wister Starr, granddaughter of the former couple and daughter of John Wister inherited the estate. She added telepone and electricity with underground cables so that the garden would not be disturbed with poles. Sarah's husband, James Starr, added water and rock gardens, while she added a garden of 100 hybrid tea roses. A Chinese style garden was added after a trip to China in 1933.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wilson Peale (former owner, 1780); Sarah Logan Fisher Wister (former owner, 1823); John Wister (former owner); Sarah Logan Wister Starr (former owner, 1922-1956); and La Salle University (owners of portions of property and house, 1926, 1984).

Place:
Stoney Lodge (Saluda, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Saluda
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and site plans.
General:
The house was originally built in 1908 as a summer home. Saluda soon became a summer colony for many people from South Carolina. The house is named "Stoney Lodge" for a previous owner, Mary Stoney Fisher, who laid out the gardens. The original gardens and stone walls were laid out in the early 20th century. Plantings included native wildflowers and shrubs with additions of Japanese maples, hydrangea paniculata, etc. A collection of native azaleas also dates to this time. The property now consists of approximately 1 1/2 acres with the balance of property in woods. The basic design of the original beds were retained by the present owners. The owners expanded some areas to extend the season of bloom beyond original summer-only plantings.
Persons and organizations associated with the site include: William B. Gordon (former owner, 1908); Martha W. Hill (former owner, 1919-1923); Mary Stoney Fisher (former owner and garden designer, 1923); Jane Fisher Dana (former owner); Julia Keenan Walker (former owner, 1951); William J. Keenan, Jr. (former owner, 1972-1984);

Sessions Village #2 (Columbus, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Franklin County -- Columbus
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, photocopies of articles, and other information.
General:
Located on ten acres, Sessions Village is divided into 29 plots with freestanding homes. It is part of a huge plot of land owned by Francis Sessions who, in 1927, formed a corporation to build the village. Inspired by the French Norman village style, architect Robert Reeves, Sr. designed this self-contained community in its entirety. It is enclosed by high garden walls planted with gray beech, oaks, and elm trees that offer privacy from nearby development. Archways and shrubbery accent the gated entrance. Once inside the gated entry, stucco, half-timber, brick, stone, slate and wrought iron are used to the best possible effect. Some notable features include houses with high, pitched roofs and picturesque chimneys, diamond paned windows, walled gardens, formal courtyard entrances, and narrow paths to rear gardens and narrow streets edged with cobblestone. The community features common areas for residents including a pond and garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Robert Reeves, Sr. (architect and former owner, 1928-1939); Strouse Campbell (former owner, 1940); Rupert E. Schotts (former owner, 1941-1942); Carl Mitchell Tree (former owner, 1943-1978); Donald W. Nelson (1979-1983); Betsy M. Kent (former owner, 1984-1985); Sally Windels (former owner, 1986-1996); Carl R. Frye (landscape architect,1929); Marion V. Packard (landscape architect, 1980s) and Judith Dunn Fisher (garden designer 1997-present).
There is additional documentation of other gardens in Sessions Village. See OH226000, OH230000, and OH232000-235000.
