General:
Charles Pond, a wealthy businessman, bequeathed his estate to the City of Hartford in the late 1800s to be used as a horticultural park and named it after his wife, Elizabeth. In 1897, the Elizabeth Park Rose Garden was one of the first municipal rose gardens established in America. The rose garden was designed by Theodore Wirth, a Swiss landscape architect hired by the Olmsted firm, who finished training at London's Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. In 1904, the rose garden was constructed and planted. In 1912, the American Rose Society recognized its splendor and significance and requested that a half acre semi-circle be added and used as this country's first test rose garden. The garden was originally famous for its variety of Hybrid Perpetuals (eight original beds continue to bloom). By the 1960s the park became so neglected and weed filled that the American Rose Society would no longer recognize it as an accredited testing grounds. In 1977, the Friends of Elizabeth Park was formed and they hired a rosarian. A restored garden replanted with new vintage plants was installed. The American Rose Society reinstated Elizabeth Park as a test garden. Today, the garden has 15,000 rose bushes of about 800 varieties--mainly Hybrid Teas, Grandifloras, Floribundas, shrubs, polyanthas, and minis. In 1990, the All-American Rose Selections awarded Elizabeth Park the most outstanding garden award. Other gardens in the park include an annual garden; a perennial garden; an herb garden; a rockery; a Dahlia garden; and a large number of rare and unusual trees and shrubs.
This collection is made up of glass lantern slides, photo prints (color and b&w), glass plate negatives, and postcards. The images include the construction of the garden and early visitors. They also depict the pond and bridge; rose gardens; perennial beds; an aerial view; and expanses of lawn.
Persons and entities associated with the property and garden include: Charles Pond (former owner); City of Hartford and Town of West Hartford (present owners); and Theodore Wirth (park designer and supervisor, 1897).

General:
Located on a third of an acre in downtown Hartford, this garden was established in 1985 as part of a redevelopment project. A parking lot which previously occupied the space was relocated and landscaped to make room for the community garden. Designed by Jeff Gebrian and his company CR3, it serves as a common area for the residents who host many activities and social events there. The garden is flanked by two groups of brownstone row houses that were built in the 1860s and 1870s. The centerpiece of the garden is a raised brownstone circle that provides seating along its edge. Vertical stones mark the four corners of the compass with a stone line pointing north. Other features include a vegetable garden, a shade garden, and a compost pile. The garden is part of the Buckingham Square Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.

General:
This is a three-quarter acre urban garden growing since 1987 around a 1926 Tudor-style house that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an Historic District property. The densely-planted gardens are described as an informal museum of perennials, native plants, shrubs and trees since the owners have created more gardens and kept adding plant materials for almost thirty years. The first foundation garden planted in front of the house included juniper, hollies, and rhododendrons, later filled in with dozens of perennials and more shrubs including azaleas, day lilies, hydrangea, iris, peonies, allium, hosta, mountain laurel, English ivy, geraniums and rhubarb. Now in front of the house there are perennial borders all the way to the street, alongside the driveway and in island beds around trees. In the first years of ownership a bluestone patio was built off the sun room, with a patio garden eventually planted with weigela, tree peony, ferns, ladies mantle, ginger and more. A long perennial border that contained only azaleas and a crabapple was amended with peonies, lilies, bachelor buttons, lady's mantle, anemone, coreopsis and more.
When two diseased hemlocks near the patio had to be removed a sunny garden area opened up that was planted with kousa dogwood, hydrangea, rhododendron and new varieties of hosta. A shaded woodland garden border was created for May apple, wood poppy, astilbe, ginger, lily-of-the-valley, Solomon's seal, blood root and a burr oak. Two raised beds for vegetables were added in the sunny lawn, growing tomatoes, peas, beans, squash, lettuce, carrots and basil.
Persons associated with the garden include Charles Blake (former owner, 1926-1946); Louise Garvin (former owner, 1946-1975); Thomas Valashinas (former owner, 1975-1978); Michael Budlong (former owner, 1978-1986); Russell F.

The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of plans.
General:
The original landscape was designed by landscape architect Thomas M. Desmond in the 1920's when the Federal-style brick house was built on a two-thirds acre lot in a newly developed neighborhood. Remaining features from the early gardens include a sugar maple tree in front of the house, a weeping beech at the side near the sun porch, curving beds along the back and side perimeters with mixed conifers, and winding paths of stepping stones. A venerable Japanese maple next to the original bluestone patio was pruned to reveal its branching structure, wisteria was removed from the house, and there are plans to remove rhododendron that have grown unattractive. Desmond's original planting plan had five fruit trees placed around the back lawn, a cutting salad garden, and a service area outside the laundry room, now converted to a breakfast room that opens to a new second patio. A curved drive in front of the house that connects to the original driveway leading to the garage was built in the 1980's.
From the driveway the garden is entered through an archway. The expanse of back lawn is used for games and entertaining and to display a stainless steel sculpture "Monogenesis #1" by Peter Diepenbrock. A curving stone wall in one corner is the backdrop to a planted bed and containers. The western bed of evergreens also has flowers planted on either side of the path of stepping stones.
In 1929 the architect Clifton C. West wrote articles for the Hartford Courant newspaper called "Your Prospective Home" with recommendations for designing houses and gardens that match the design of this house.
Persons associated with the garden include Samuel Gross (former owner, 1923-1938); Elbridge M. Beecher (former owner, 1938- ); James A. and Karen P. Grigsby (former owners, dates unknown); Clifton C. West (architect, 1923); Thomas M. Desmond (1884-1950) (landscape architect, 1924); Edward Cape/Wilhelm Associates (architectural renovations drawings, 1985); Peter Diepenbrock (sculptor, 2002).

General:
The 4.79-acre property with a red brick Tudor influenced mansion built in 1913, and the grounds, were in disrepair in 1994 when the current owner gave it a name and began restorations. Mature trees including fruit trees were kept and augmented with more trees and shrubs in front of the house and in the center of the circular driveway. Many garden room designs were inspired by visits to gardens in England and Ireland, and garden features were acquired following visits to gardens in Europe and the American southwest. The owners added an outdoor kitchen to a patio with ornamental ironwork that had been built by the original owners in 1926. A nearby stone fireplace that is used year round was inspired by the outdoor fire pits in New Mexico. Three terraces or tiers divided by low stonewalls and new plantings connect the patio to the swimming pool. On the uppermost terrace there is a formal parterre garden with boxwood hedges and pincushion topiary. Grass walkways on the terraces are bordered by continuous blooms; lilies are favored and other perennials are added to extend bloom time. There is another patio with a hot tub, Adirondack chairs, and a stone lantern. A rustic arbor and stone steps lead to a lower garden and the vestigial Park River. The newest garden room close to the river is Asian-inspired, with Japanese cherry trees, dogwood, magnolia and weeping evergreen and a red painted footbridge over a stone 'river'.
On the north side of the property a restored former pony barn is used for storing garden tools. Nearby there is a new heated chicken house and vegetable garden with fruit trees enclosed by a white picket fence. A cutting garden with ironwork arches at each end has been added. Outside the kitchen there is a large herb garden, wall fountain on a gray fence, and a grape arbor on the site of a former dog pen. Other garden rooms include rose beds and a shade garden with hosta, fern, lily-of-the-valley and trillium. Flowering shrubs include lilac, mature rhododendron, and mountain laurel, the Connecticut state flower. There are extensive vines including eight varieties of clematis, three varieties of honeysuckle, trumpet vines and wisteria. Garden ornaments include a statue of Neptune next to the swimming pool, a tall angel on the patio near the outdoor kitchen, a large stone face set in one of the terraces, many planted containers and urns, and an armillary sphere.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles A. and Ruth Cheney Goodwin (former owners, 1913-1953); Richard C. Levin (former owner, circa 1956-1970); W. Robert Lappin (former owner, 1970-1994); Benjamin Wistar Morris (1870-1944) (architect, 1913); Tony DiBatiste (gardener, circa 1913-1954).
