General:
"This historic eighteenth century residence was deeded by the Crown Grant to the Thornes, a Quaker family and has remained in their possession ever since. It was famed in the nineteenth century for the quality of their breeding cattle and for their standard bred horses."
"It was Mr. Thorne's great grandmother, the late Mrs. Oakleigh Thorne, who was responsible for the planning and planting of Thorndale's gardens which were for many years listed as the most beautiful in the world. The gardens have seen many changes through the years, but are still a beautiful setting for the largest classic white clapboard house with ist huge columns on its portico. The trees, white pine, spruce, red oaks, white oaks, maples and elms have been assiduously tended for decades."
"Most of the gardens are within sight and sound of water. Old stone steps rise from the upper pond's edge to green lawn. A path circles the pool where water-lilies bloom and dogwood and azaleas abound. A swimming pool is passed on the way to the lower pond and water pavilion. The pavilion, designed by Jerome Allen, architect, stands two stories high to command a long vista."
"A stream links the two ponds and is shaded by birch, dogwood and elms. Drifts of daffodils are naturalized in the fields beyond."
"Pierced brick walls with espaliered fruit trees surround the yew garden. Here you will find a great many varieties of taxus and magnificent topiary work. At the entrance to trim paths stand eighteenth century English stone monkeys playing musical instruments."
Mr. and Mrs. Oakleigh Thorne also owned Las Tejas, Santa Barbara, California.
Persons associated with the property include: Edward Van Altena (colorist for lantern slides); Nellie B. Allen (landscape architect); Helen Page Wodell (landscape architect); Jerome Allen (architect); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect); Helen Thorne (former owner); Wodell and Contrell (landscape architect).
