Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, garden plans, a description of the garden by Julie Jordin, a tree and shrub list, and detailed historical information (including photocopies of public documents) about the property.
General:
The 1834 Charles Coffin house is the site of this one-third acre garden in the center of Nantucket town. Surrounded by mature maple and elm trees that protect it from the island's harsh climate extremes, the garden features a formal front yard and a backyard that includes several garden "rooms." The front yard is enclosed by the original wheat sheaf fence found in the attic during a restoration, while the plant material is composed primarily of trimmed boxwood hedges in keeping with Coffin's conservative Quaker tradition. The backyard includes a large cutting garden on the west side of the house, while established hydrangeas, azaleas, rhododendrons, and hostas provide a border for the lawn and a backdrop for the pond. A period sunken garden features two 19th-century statues flanking the steps and opposing camelback sofas created out of boxwood. A twisted steel gazebo hides underneath wisteria in a shady back corner.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Charles Coffin (former owner, ca. 1830s); Paul Faulkner "Chip" Callaway and Callaway & Associates (landscape architects, 2000-2002); and Julie Jordin and The Garden Design Co. (landscape designers, 2004-2006).

Archival materials
Place:
Nindethana (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and garden plan.
General:
The present owners purchased seven acres of land bordering native cranberry bogs under cultivation. The property was layered with clay and surrounded on two sides by a hardwood forest (unique on Nantucket). After completing the house construction, the owners surrounded the rear with an 8 foot deep pond landscaped with native bayberry and pine; and stocked the pond with koi. A 100x100 foot sunken garden with croquet court exists off the guest wing. This garden is surrounded by a wood lattice fence ending in an arched arbor walk entered through four moongates. Roses, perennials, annuals, and sculpted arborvitae and boxwood fill the borders and cover the fencing. A privet maze surrounds a Grandiflora magnolia outside the garden and leads to a swimming pool area. Terraces in random cut bluestone surround a dark granite pool. A native fern forest grows beneath tupelos in the nearby wetlands. The garden won the Hunnewell gold medal from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society for outstanding design on an estate over seven acres in 1993.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Robert (former owners, 1983-2000); Hoen Meier (landscape designer, 1983-1988); Edward Knowles (architect, 1983-1990); Leonard Campanale (gardener/designer, 1988-2003); and Larry Schuck (builder of arbor and fence).

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
12 India Street (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, garden plan, application for historic plaque, copies of deeds, newspaper articles, estate advertisements, and plant list.
General:
This "in-town" 1/4 acre garden is of the formal English style and is meant to be viewed initially from the front door, through the conservatory on a straight axis to a walled fountain at the rear of the property. The garden is on two levels, rectangular in shape, with a vertical brick walk, bisected by a horizontal walkway ending in benches on either side. Boxwood hedges define a primarily perennial garden. The beds on opposite sides of the terrace are dominated by centered small deciduous trees--a crabapple on one side and a Kousa Dogwood on the other. Spring wildflowers, bulbs and herbaceous plants complete the ground cover layer. The two levels are defined by a low stone wall. The left side is possibly original to the house, perhaps a foundation of an earlier building. The terrace functions as an "away" spot for outside summer dining.
Persons associated with the property include: John Swain (builder of house, 1828-1834); and Lucinda Young (garden designer, 1997). A complete list of ownership is included in documentation.

Nantucket -- Blue Fish Inn Garden

Archival materials
Place:
Blue Fish Inn Garden (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, site plans, plant list, copies of title, history, and copies of articles.
General:
In 1970, an acre of land was purchased in Nantucket. It was covered with scrub oak, beach plum bushes and pine trees. The house, Blue Fish Inn, was built in the northeast corner. The garden was created around the house. A lawn and herbaceous border were enclosed first with pine trees. When the trees succumbed to the pine beetle, a decision was then made to plant only trees that thrived on the island and to surround the property with flowering trees. The owners surrounded the entire garden with a four foot solid wooden fence. White Hibiscus syriacus 'Red Heart' was planted around the perimeter of the garden and Kwanzan Japanese cherry trees were planted along the border of the road. Ten Bradford pear trees were planted inside the southern boundary. In 1990, the garden was extended to surround a swimming pool and a new small cottage named Beach Plum Cottage. To hide a required chain fence, the owners planted honeysuckle, Lonicera periclymenum, on the pool side of the Althea hedge.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Russell Pope (landscape gardener, 1970); Michael Glowacki (landscape gardener, 1990).

Innisfree (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
Innisfree is a beach property on a spit of land between marshes and ocean bay that presented the owner, a life-long gardener, with the challenge of creating a garden in sand. The shingled house with large columns supporting the porch roof was designed in 1990 by architect Robert Venturi, but the gardens on the ten and two-third acres property were inspired by Frank Cabot, founder of the Nature Conservancy, and George Schoellkopf. The first steps taken stabilized the planting areas by filling stone lined trenches with potting soil. The featured rectangular garden is a secret, sunken garden, called a ha-ha after the English practice of digging a steep drop-off along one side of a garden to keep out the livestock, here deer and rabbits. The sunken elevation provides protection from the salt spray and drying winds of the oceanside location so more delicate plants can be grown there. Other garden areas feature native plants that are hardier, and an herb garden is protected by a clipped privet hedge.
Kiwi, trumpet and grape vines grow on a pergola that shades a seating area with a table made from a huge millstone. Another large stone feature is an olive grinding stone re-purposed as a fountain, with three giant frog sculptures playing instruments nearby. Other millstones and granite boulders are set throughout Innisfree, as are antique ironwork features. A garden between the house and the ha-ha is filled with colorful summer flowers and bordered by rugosa roses.
Persons associated with the garden include: Robert Venturi (architect, 1990-1991); George Schoellkopf (horticulturist); and Julie Jordin (horticulturist and garden designer, 1996).

Place:
Grey Gardens (Nantucket, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Nantucket County -- Nantucket
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
Located on two acres, this woodland garden on Nantucket island was once part of "Mooney Farm." When the land was divided for residential use, the farm's top soil was removed and sold. Over fifteen years, the owners have added a few shrubs to the landscape improving the soil as needed. Container gardening was relied on for summer color. The first garden room created by the owner, was a winding path down a slope of the property. Now Grey Gardens is comprised of many rooms including a pond garden with a sandy shoreline, an evergreen garden, a decorative grass garden, terraces and decks for entertaining, woodland paths dotted with benches and small plantings, fences made by hand from tree limbs, many birdhouses, statues, stone steps, shaped privet hedges, and container gardens. There are large painted frames suspended from trees that are called follies and help focus attention on particular garden elements.
The property includes woodlands and a meadow growing native trees, shrubs, grasses and wildflowers. The plants and decorative elements that have been introduced are intended to embellish and highlight the natural settings. Many of the garden ornaments are repurposed including sculpted, tiled or painted fragments that have been installed in birdbaths or on the walls of the tool shed. A pair of salvaged doors is hung in season at the entrance to the garden with a plaque reading Secret Garden. The owner and garden designer is more interested in the textures of trees, shrubs, and hardscape than he is in flowers although the garden beds and containers introduce spots of color during the spring and summer.
Persons associated with the garden include: Ethel Mooney (former owner, 1965); and William Richard (former owner (1965-1979).

Scope and Contents:
18 digital images and 1 folder. The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of historic deeds and images of the property.
General:
The nearly three acre property was named for its granite outcroppings and perimeter woodlands of leafy trees, and had a seven-room pre-fabricated clapboard seasonal cottage built by the first owners. In the 1920's the property changed ownership, the house was expanded to 25 rooms and clad in stucco, and hardscape and gardens were designed by landscape architect Fletcher Steele. He used pink marble from Rockport, Massachusetts for a terrace in back, curving front steps, and walls for an Italianate garden planted with roses and herbaceous borders. The current owners are maintaining Steele's hardscapes minus the Italianate walled garden as it was demolished in the 1980's and replaced with a tennis court. One section of Steele's wall remains, along which the owners have planted a 120-foot border with bulbs, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Fruit trees also were planted around the tennis court. A new rainbow garden comprised of seven raised beds is planted with flowers, vegetables and fruits arranged by color. Rhododendrons are featured in foundation plantings near the house, the pool house and along the walk into the woodlands, and there is a small rose garden tucked into the terrace behind the house that overlooks the tennis court.
Persons associated with the garden include Hattie Lee and Walter Leslie Harris (former owners, 1917-1926); Jane S. Van Voorhis (former owner, 1926-1948); Gertrude M. Goodhue (former owner, 1948-1959); Katharine S. Wilkins (former owner, 1959-1960); Albert Eiseman II (former owner, 1960-1967); Appleton King (former owner (1967-1983); Real O. Roy (former owner, 1983-1985); Fletcher Steele (1885-1971) (landscape architect, 1920's and 1950's); Robert Flannagan (gardener, 1985- ).
