Cross Garden, formerly known as.
General note:
Located on three-quarter acres in suburban Maryland was laid out in 1929 by Rose Ishbel Greely (b.1887-d.1969), the first licensed female landscape architect in Washington DC. Three terrace levels were built alongside the house to accommodate the sloping site, surrounded by low stone walls and with stone steps between levels. A pool with a fountain jet was installed at the terminus of level three and cast stone benches were placed along the side walls. Now mature trees growing outside the walls including pin oak, tulip magnolia, elm and overgrown mock orange keep the area shady in summer. Climbing hydrangea, English ivy and moss cover the walls. Azaleas, roses and iris add color to the garden and pachysandra is used as a ground cover inside and outside the walls.
Outside the walled garden the rest of the property has been planted lawn except during the ownership of Dr. Charles Whitman Cross (1854-1949). A retired geologist, Cross designed a rose garden, planting two thousand bushes and hybridizing new roses, including the deep crimson rambler called the "Chevy Chase" rose as well as roses named "Hon. Lady Lindsay"and "Mrs. Whitman Cross." In the late 1920s Dr. and Mrs. Cross founded the local chapter of the American Rose Society known as the Potomac Rose Society.
This garden was originally documented in the 1930s, at that time it was identified as the Cross Garden.
Persons associated with the garden include) Mr. and Mrs. John Weaver (former owners, 1899-1915); Commander and Mrs. Horace Macfarland (former owners, 1915-1924); Dr. and Mrs. Charles Whitman Cross (former owners, 1924-1945); Mr. and Mrs. Charles Glassie (former owners, 1945-1954); Mr. and Mrs. Richard Marsh (former owners, 1954-2013); Arthur Heaton (architect, 1899); Rose Ishbel Greely (landscape architect, 1929).

Wild Moor (Newport, Rhode Island)
Scope and Contents:
This file contains 20 digital images and 1 folder.
General:
Established in 1887, Wild Moor (also known as Berry Hill) is a woodland and natural landscape planted with native species on 22 acres. It has been in the same family for over 100 years and is protected by a land trust by new owners. Wild Moor sits on the second highest point on Aquidneck Island, overlooking Narragansett Bay, the Newport Country Club, and before the extensive planting of trees, the town of Newport and its harbor.

The garden was cultivated by the first owners, Walter and Mary Howe. Water penned a book of essays titled, 'The Garden.' After Walter's death Mary married Arnold Hague, a geologist and amateur botanist. She attended botany courses at Columbia University and the couple began to plant specimen trees, shrubs, fern landscapes, a rock garden, swaths of crocus, trout lilies and narcissus. The added acreage and constructed a tennis court, greenhouses, stone garden sheds and a rose house.

Mary Howe Hague was the first president of the Newport Garden Club. Club members were invited to the property's spring flowering in 1914 and it was open to visits by members throughout the family's ownership of the estate.

Donald MacKay Fraser, a coachman promoted to gardener, oversaw Berry Hill from 1932 to 1976. A Scottish immigrant, he was not trained in horticulture, but overtime became a knowledgeable gardener who sought advice from other gardeners including other Scots working on Newport's grand estates. MacKay's era saw the gradual clearing of the land and construction of structures including a stonewall-enclosed "Little Garden," "Loch Fraser," a catchment pond, the "Shanty," a wooden shed perched atop fitted with a small fireplace and baby grand piano for Mary Carlisle Howe, an accomplished composer and one of the founders of the National Symphony Orchestra.

The property was sold in 2020 and renamed Wild Moor, the windswept garden, with mossy dells, rock-strewn lawns and panoramic vistas.

Persons associated with the property include: Walter and Mary Ann Bruce Howe (former owner, 1887); Walter Bruce Howe (former owner, 1923); Mary C. Howe (former owner, 1954); Bruce Howe (former owner, 1959); Berry Hill Nominee Trust (former owner, 1992); Samuel Parsons (unknown role, 1887); Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect of subdivision/sited the house); McKim, Mead, and White? (architect); Michael Carney (head gardener, 1889-1908); William Richardson (head gardener, 1909-1919); Charles Clark (head gardener, 1920-1930); Frederick S. Franco (head gardener, 1931-1932); Donald Fraser (coachman and gardener, superintendent/horticulture, 1933-1975); John Salvador (head gardener, 1976-1992); Keith Hayward (head gardener, 1993-present); Howe family (garden designers).

14 photographic prints of locations in China, taken by the Geologist Bailey Willis in 1903-1904 during a Carnegie institution funded geological expedition through China. Scenes include pagodas at Wutaishan and Tang dynasty Nestorian monuments outside of Xi'an. Documentation is sparse, but the photographs appear to have been sent to Charles L. Freer by Willis in November of 1908. At the time, Freer was considering purchase of a modern replica of the Nestorian Stele. His examination of Willis' original photograph of the stele confirmed that the replica was not worth acquisition.
