General:
After Beatrix Farrand moved from Reef Point, she built an addition for herself onto the home of Lewis and Amy Garland, the longtime caretakers of Reef Point. Farrand selected her favorite plants and architectural elements and transplanted them to Garland Farm. After Farrand's death in 1959, the Garland's took care of the garden until they sold the property in ca. 1969. The front garden was framed with Reef Point fence and incorporated Asian and native plants. The main garden, at the back of the wing, contained elements of Farrand's herbaceous plant collection. This garden consists of rectangular beds with gravel paths between. The central panels are mostly heaths and heathers from Farrand's collection. On January 9, 2004, Garland Farm was purchased by the Beatrix Farrand Society. Their purpose is to repair the house and restore the gardens back to Farrand's design in order to serve as a center for research and activities.

Goff (former owners, 1970-1993); Robert W. Patterson (architect of back wing (1955-1956); and Beatrix Farrand (landscape architect, 1955-1959).

Place:
Kenarden (Bar Harbor, Maine)
United States of America -- Maine -- Hancock County -- Bar Harbor
Scope and Contents:
The folders includes worksheets, historical information about the property, and a garden tour description.
General:
The original gardens at Kenarden were designed by landscape architect Beatrix Jones Farrand (1872-1959) early in the last century and have been restored and replanted by the current owners. The gardens include a formal rose garden with boxwood edging that has a contemporary Lunaform urn at its center. The fomal sunken Italianate garden's balustrade and pergola were replicated by garden designer Dennis Bracale, and the flower beds were replanted. Urns created by Eric Ellis Soderholtz in the early 20th century are in situ in the Italianate garden as well as around the residence. Large cutting and vegetable gardens were installed in the same location as the historic gardens, alongside greenhouses. Many of the original outhouses remain on the property as well as mature specimens including a Japanese umbrella pine, a very large hawthorn tree, a mature gingko, and very mature pieris, kalmia and rhododendron. An iron fence surrounding the property was added with new perimeter plantings. The drive from the main entrance cuts through native woods that are maintained as a decorative feature.
Kenarden Lodge was one of the original summer properties built at the end of the 19th century in Mount Desert, Maine. The turreted mansion with its own electrical plant designed by New York architects Rowe and Baker in 1892 was torn down in the 1960s and another house was built in its place circa 1970 by the architectural firm Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen. The first owner of the property was financier John Stewart Kennedy; the estate was sold in the 1930s to Ethel Mallinckrot Dorrance, widow of Dr. John Thompson Dorrance, a chemist at Campbell who invented condensed canned soups.
Encouraged by Beatrix Farrand, Eric Ellis Soderholtz switched from photography to manufacturing garden urns and other ornaments, some of which remain at Kenarden.
Persons associated with the garden include John Stewart Kennedy and members of the Kennedy family (former owners, 1892-1933); Ethel Mallinckrot Dorrance (former owner 1933-1958); Ethel Dorrance Colket (former owner 1958-1966); Rowe and Baker (architects of original house, 1892); Beatrix Jones Farrand (landscape architect, circa 1915); Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen (architects of current house, 1970-1972; firm in business 1946-1973 ); AB & JR Hodgkins, Inc. (builders of current house, 1970-1972); Dennis Bracale, Gardens by Design (landscape designer).

United States of America -- Maine -- Hancock County -- Bar Harbor
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet and copy of article.
General:
"Baymeath" was a southern colonial house four miles from Bar Harbor Village. It was situated on a hillside from which a series of terraces led down to the bay. One of these, formerly a tennis court, was a formal garden enclosed by vine-covered stone walls on two sides and high fences with actinidia on the other two. Beyond the house, another lattice-enclosed garden stood with a rose bed. Climbing roses covered all the fences. Another rose arbor led into the woods where lupine, day lilies, and wild roses grew. From all these gardens, a wide view of Frenchman's Bay added contrast to the color of the northern flowers. The house was razed in 1979.
Person(s) associated with the garden property include(s): Louise DeKoven Bowen (former owner, 1895-1953); Andrews, Jaques and Rantoul (architects); Herbert Jacques (architect and landscape architect); and Arthur Chilman (gardener).

General:
A nine acre property with woodlands and an ocean view has a modern, geometric style house built in the 1970s, replacing a 19th century summer house. The garden designed by landscape architect Patrick Chassé surrounds the house and terrace, with a manageably sized lawn, adding color but also complimenting the house's lines and angles. This semi-formal garden is enclosed in a wooden fence with a decorative gate. Features include an antique birdbath and large jar made by Maine potter Eric Ellis Soderholtz and a small round pool cut into the terrace with sculptures of bronze herons. Across the driveway there is a large cutting garden enclosed by deer fencing. Adironadack chairs are scattered on the lawn on the ocean side of the house, with a view of Cromwell Cove and the wildflower garden that separates the lawn from the beach.
Persons associated with the garden include: Henry M. Prentis (former owner, circa 1860); Edward Coles and Molly Coles (former owners, late 1860s and circa 1900-circa 1943); Jackson Laboratory (former owners, 1943-1963); John Pearce (architect, 1973); Patrick Chassé (landscape architect, 1990-1992); Eric Ellis Soderholtz (sculptor).

Keewaydin (Bar Harbor, Maine)
United States of America -- Maine -- Hancock County -- Bar Harbor
Scope and Contents:
The folders includes worksheets and photocopies of articles and correspondence.
General:
Keewaydin was a 23 acre property. Beatrix Farrand (1872 - 1953) designed the summer garden for financier Gardiner Sherman's shingle-style "cottage" in Bar Harbor, Maine. The garden featured a formal almond-shaped bed planted with roses and summer blooming flowers with a three-tiered fountain in the center. Other flower beds separated by lawn were augmented with decorative columns and other garden ornaments, stone benches and planted containers. The design included a rock garden and woods beyond the sloping lawns. A folly was modeled on the 18th century Temple of the Winds designed by Sir William Chambers. The house and garden were destroyed in 1947 in a fire that devastated Bar Harbor.
The Bar Harbor Keewaydin should not be confused with another property in Seal Harbor, Maine, also called Keewaydin, with a garden designed by Farrand. The Seal Harbor property was owned by Dr. Edward K. Dunham.
Persons associated with the garden include: Gardiner Sherman (former owner from 1898); Beatrix Farrand (1872-1959) (landscape architect); and Hugh Lamb (1849 - 1903) & Charles Alonzo Rich (1855 - 1943) (architects).
