United States of America -- Washington -- King County -- Seattle
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, plant lists, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This garden is composed of two parts: an upper garden and a lower garden. The lower garden is a Japanese garden enclosed by a high brick wall. A small stream framed with plants winds through the lawn in view of the house. It originates from a natural spring on the upper level, forming a waterfall as it fills the pool below. The pool is surrounded by a rockery planted with azaleas, dwarf Japanese maples, and pine trees. A Colorado spruce cascades over the waterfall. In the spring the upper level is a mass of blooming daffodils and narcissus bulbs. These give way later to flowering rhododendrons, azaleas, etc., which are planted in beds surrounding the lawn. On either side of the upper lawn are native trees and shrubs, such as elms and huckleberry. A pink dogwood and Prunus dominate this part of the garden in the fall.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Robert Popin Greer (former owners, 1913-1954); Otto Holmdahl (landscape gardener, 1930); Oliver Ester (landscape gardener, 1950-1960); John Kenyon (landscape gardener, 1950-1960); Ossie Ohata (gardener, 1960-1990); and Don Asalton (gardener, 1993 to date).

General:
A 400 year old Elizabethan manor in England was purchased by Mr. Thorne and dismantled and shipped brick by brick from England to be included in the building of Thornewood. Thornewood, built in 1911, once covered 100 acres, from the American Lake shore to the Tacoma Country and Golf Club. The mountain served as the inspiration for the landscape design. "The mountain at a distance has been brought into the picture by means of long, horizontal lines, by the general contrivance of walks, borders, boundary walls, by the preservation of certain natural trees..." (Howe, 1915) The garden terminated with two arbors united with balustrades. A Japanese garden was planted in two corners near a water garden. Most of the estate was divided into 30 home sites in 1959. In 1982, the house was named to the National Register of Historic Places. By 1988, the property was reduced to three acres on the lake. The current owners use the house, "Thornewood Castle," and property as a bed and breakfast.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. Chester Thorne (former owner, 1910-1927 ); Perry and Connie Palmer (former owners, 1965-1988?); John C. Olmsted of Olmsted Brothers, Landscape Architects (landscape architect, 1910).
Tacoma Garden Club facilitated the documentation of the 1990s photographs of this garden.
