General:
Little Oatlands has a two-acre formal garden originally designed in the mid-1930's by the owners David and Margaret Finley, and the garden rooms, allées, stone walls, gazebo, statues and sculptures have been maintained with few changes for 80 years. The first garden room inside the main gate was installed in 1935 and has four parterres bordered with boxwood around a central fountain, originally a sundial. The original English boxwood borders have been replaced with Korean and American box cultivars in this and the other three rooms. Three more garden rooms were developed in 1937: two bisecting cedar allées that lead to a gazebo set over the stone wall, a flowering cherry allée that leads to a wall fountain, and another room with a large planted urn, a statue of St. Francis Assisi and a swath formerly used as a bowling green bordered by statues of the four seasons. A swimming pool was added in 1952. Boxwood hedges define the rooms within the perimeter of stone walls and ornamental iron gates provide entry to the different rooms. Some of the statues and fountains were copied from classical Italian pieces, and the gazebo was copied from one in England. Original sculptures include "Suzanna at the Bath" by Paul Manship and "The Little Shepherd Boy" by Walter Hancock. In addition to the main house there is a guest cottage on the property. Recent work in the gardens includes replanting long borders of ephemeral spring bulbs under the flowering cherry allée.
In the early 18th century this country house was a tenant farmer's stone cottage on the 63,093 acre estate known as Oatlands Plantation. In 1887 the Carter family was forced to sell the large property but continued to own a few cottages and 180 acres, and called it Little Oatlands. Members of the Eustis family have owned this property since 1927 and have enlarged this house and converted the Carter's vegetable garden into the existing formal garden. In 1965 Oatlands mansion, garden and more than 250 surrounding acres were deeded to the National Trust for Historic Preservation with easements for the family.
Persons associated with the garden include George Carter (former owner, 1798-1847); Mrs. George Carter (former owner, 1847-1897); George Carter II (former owner, 1897-1926); Mr. and Mrs. William Corcoran Eustis (former owner, 1927-1932); David E. Finley, Jr. (1890-1977) and Margaret Morton Eustis Finley (1903-1977) (former owners, 1932-1977); Dick and Joan Williams (former owners, 1977-2014); Paul Manship (sculptor, 1947); Francesco Righetti (sculptor); Walter Hancock (sculptor, c. 1960); Margaret Eustis Finley (sculptor, c. 1930)

United States of America -- Virginia -- Orange County -- Orange
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies from publications.
General:
The house and garden known as Montebello was started ca. 1740 by Benjamin Cave II, with the garden designed by his wife, Elizabeth Belfield Cave ca. 1760, and constructed by slaves. The colonial garden was laid out in terraces, and included an English kitchen garden and a boxwood garden. The second terrace had a cutting garden of flowers. A boxwood allee leads to the main house. The house was built of red brick, and there are brick walkways and brick walls defining the garden rooms.
In 1987 the 1.093 acre garden was still extant and owned by Mrs. Gray Dunnington. It was not open to the public.
Montebello was a plantation, built by slave labor, with the original land deed given by King George II (of England) to Benjamin Cave (ca. 1684-1762) in 1728, who passed the land on to his son Benjamin II.
Persons associated with the garden include Benjamin Cave II and Elizabeth Belfield Cave (former owners, ca.1740), the Cave family descendants including Mrs. Leslie Gray (7th generation former owner, ca. 1962), and Mrs. Gray Dunnington (former owner, 1987).

Twin Maples (Litchfield, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Litchfield -- Salisbury
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and a personal account by the current owner.
General:
When the current owners purchased Twin Maples in 1996 the nearly 325 acre property had belonged previously to only two other families and had never been developed. A Georgian-style house was built with two formal gardens, formal terrace, greenhouse, indoor swimming pool, guest house and caretaker's cottage. However restoring and preserving the habitat was just as important to the owners, and they installed the stand-out feature at Twin Maples: forty acres devoted to native grasses and wildflowers that can be seen from the house. Woodlands and shrub lands were cleared of non-native invasive species and supplemented with large scale planting of regionally appropriate trees, shrubs and understory. A rocky outcrop seen from the driveway supports native mosses, ferns and low bush blueberries. There is a substantial pergola in the woodlands walk garden and a labyrinth installed in a field. Following the initial renovation the landscape was designed to be self-sustaining with native species supported to the extent that invasive species cannot return and maintenance can be reduced. For instance, the meadow areas are mowed only once a year in the fall so nesting birds are not disturbed yet woody species do not get established. Despite the size of the property less than one acre is maintained as lawn.
The property was a land grant to the Selleck family from the English King George II in 1740. There were two maple trees marking the spot of a long-gone residence, and Twin Maples is the name associated with that history.
Persons associated with the garden include Selleck family (former owners, early 1700s-1953); Lansing family (former owners, 1953-1996); David Easton (architect, 1996); Deborah Munson (landscape designer and horticulturist, 2000-present); Rodney Robinson (landscape architect, late 1990s- ); Larry Weaner (landscape designer of meadow, 1997- ); Thomas Wirth (landscape architect, 1990s)

George Read II House and Garden (New Castle, Delaware)
United States of America -- Delaware -- New Castle County -- New Castle
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, brochures, photocopies of correspondence and printed information about the garden, and a 1981 thesis by Nancy Bossler, "Interpreting History Through Gardens and Landscapes, with an Interpretive Prospectus for the Garden of the George Read II House in New Castle, Delaware.
General:
This property was the home of George Read II (1765-1836), a lawyer and son of a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The parterre garden was added about 1847 by then-owner William Couper and was in the style of Andrew Jackson Downing. The basic design of this formal garden is an oval with a circle at each end, surrounded by box and containing brick walkways. The back part of the garden is less formal in plan. After the site was donated to the Historical Society of Delaware in 1975 extensive tree work and other restoration of the garden was undertaken.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: George Read II (former owner, 1797-1836); William Couper and the Couper family (former owners, 1845-1920); and Mr. and Mrs. Philip D. Laird (former owners, 1920-1975).
