General:
This Hillwood was owned by Mr. and Mrs. Edward F. Hutton. After the Hutton's divorce in 1935, Hillwood became the property of Marjorie (formerly Mrs. Hutton) and her second husband Joseph E. Davies. Mrs. E. F. Hutton, after several divorces, was later known as Mrs. Marjorie Merriweather Post. Long Island University bought the property in 1947 to use it as one of their off-campus locations. Classes began in the mansion in 1951. The University then named the property after Marjorie Merriweather Post's father, Charles William Post, to become C. W. Post College. In 1955, Mrs. Post built a separate estate in Washington, DC, and named it "Hillwood." This is now Hillwood Museum and Gardens.
(The Fine Arts Center, located on the college property, was originally owned by Mr. E.F. Hutton, who built it after his divorce from Marjorie. He hired Marian Coffin to design this property as well.)
Persons and organizations associated with this garden include: Mr. and Mrs. William A. Prime (former owners, 1911); Mr. and Mrs. Edward F. Hutton (former owners, 1921-ca.1940); Mr. and Mrs. Joseph E.

General:
Locust Valley Cemetery is a private, non-denominational memorial that began with a unique plan over 100 years ago. The Cemetery's 19th century founders conceived of a sanctuary more like a woodland garden. In 1917, Locust Valley Cemetery was incorporated, and a perpetual care fund was established to preserve its natural beauty. A narrow curving road winds through thirty acres of evergreens, hardwoods, and ornamental plantings, which provide visual interest during all seasons. Charles Parker designed private garden rooms for family burials.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Locust Valley Cemetery, INC. (owners, 1917-present); Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects, 1922-1948); Charles Parker (overall planner); Bradley Delehanty (architect of superintendant cottage, 1929); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1990-present); and James Wellington (landscape architect of sections 3, 4, 5, and Memorial Garden.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, information regarding previous owners, historical timeline of the property, and a list and plans of landscape features.
General:
Located on approximately 38 acres, this garden surrounds the mid-19th century house. Land's End Manor was remodeled in 1926 for banker Harvey Dow Gibson by the New York firm Walker and Gillette. The garden was originally designed in the 1920s by Frederick Olmsted, Jr. The view from the terrace of the house is of a sunken garden edged with a mature low hedge enclosing perennials. There is a round pool with a water spouting statue at its center. An adjacent grape arbor separates this garden from a classical walled rose garden with a planted urn at its center. On the south side of the house is a weeping sophora japonica tree. To the north of the house, with a view of Long Island Sound, is an enclosed teahouse with a wisteria covered trellis and two wire work swings. The pool house was designed by John Collins in the late 1980s, and the rock garden extending north of the pool with many perennials, ferns, evergreen trees, yews, and junipers was designed by Adele Mitchell around that time. A white brick wall on the edge of the driveway has espaliered myrtle in a curved design. Southeast of the house are outbuildings and the vegetable and cutting gardens. These gardens have arbors of roses and grapes incorporated into their design and white gravel paths. Adjacent to this area are the paddocks where the Gibson's horses were schooled and turned out. In the early 1980s, Innocenti & Webel did the master plan for the development of the original acreage (300+) of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: George Galt Bourne (former owner, ca. 1920s); Harvey Dow Gibson (former owner, ca. 1926-1979); Frederick Olmsted, Jr. (landscape architect, ca. 1920s); Harrie T. Lindeberg (architect, ca. 1920s); Walker and Gillette (architects, 1926); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, ca. 1980s); John M. Collins (designer, ca. 1986); Adele Mitchell (landscape architect/designer, ca. 1986); Ralph Daniello (gardener, 1956-2012); John Martin (superintendent, 2013- ).

Goose Chase (Locust Valley, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Locust Valley
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, site plans (one with a plant list), photocopies of an article about the garden, and additional information.
General:
Lying on 3.2 acres adjacent to a marsh and creek, this site is highlighted by a Japanese-influenced 40' x 80' iris garden that also includes features of a cottage garden in keeping with its location by a low, rambling house. Designed in the early 1980s by Nancy B. Taylor of the landscape architecture firm Innocenti & Webel, the garden replaced what was formerly an asphalt driveway. Running the length of the garden are a dry riverbed and path, accented by two small bridges. Although there is no actual water in the garden, the use of different plants helps to simulate that effect. In addition to this garden, the site includes more natural areas with marsh and water views, as well as a swimming pool and herb garden.
Persons and firms associated with the property include Nancy B. Taylor (landscape architect, 1981); Mr. and Mrs. C. Gachot (former owners, 1956-1981); and Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1981).

General:
The formal walled garden at Feathers, created in 1996 by the current owner along with landscape designer Lisa Thompson, is a small part of the six and one-half acre property with the original circa 1730 house. The 31 by 23 foot formal garden is divided into four parterres edged in boxwood with walks made from old bricks to match a standing old brick wall. A pink rose standard grows in the center of each parterre, surrounded by low-growing ground covers and annual flowers such as pansies. The brick wall is covered in climbing hydrangea and clematis, and has three arched doorways that lead into the garden. A bronze sculpture of the owner's son as a child created by his grandmother, Mary Emma Flood (1900-1987), overlooks the garden from a niche in the brick wall.
The spring-fed property overlooks Beaver Lake, where there is a small house and rock and fern garden. There is another garden of perennial and ornamental grasses near the lake, and many mature trees. A brick room next to the main house that held a furnace in earlier days has New Dawn roses trellised on the roof.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wright (former owner and builder of the original house, circa 1730-1741); Isaac Frost and members of the Frost family (former owners, circa 1741-1763); John Underhill and members of the Underhill family (former owners, 1763-1901); Ella Kennard (former owner, 1901); Harvey Murdock and members of the Murdock family (former owners, 1901-1927); Alicia Gamble Ludlow (former owner, 1927-1953); Innis, Helen S., and Blanche S.

Keith (former owners, 1987-1994); Helen Dillon (landscape designer, 1995); Lisa Thompson (landscape designer, 1996); Robert Gahagan (architect of new addition, 1997); Mary Emma Flood (sculptor of bronze statue of child).
This property has been extensively researched for the transfers of title beginning in 1685, when a deed of sale was signed by individuals who were likely Matinecock Indians.

General:
The 1922 Georgian Revival house and 29 acre estate (first called Gay Gardens) has gardens designed in different eras by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the 1920's, Umberto Innocenti in the 1930's and 1940's, and most recently by Oehme van Sweden starting in the late 1990's. Shipman designed a sunken grass garden surrounded by a yew hedge off to the side of the house with formal flower beds with yew or beech hedges, and more flower beds on the terraces. She placed a square stone reflecting pool in the center of the sunken garden. In the 1930's Innocenti moved the stairs to the sunken garden and removed Shipman's pool, adding a lozenge-shaped pool beyond the sunken garden with an open sightline from the house. He also designed an oval swimming pool with plantings (later replaced by a rectangular pool). In the 1940's Innocenti & Webel redesigned the front courtyard and surrounded the new tennis court with beech trees. Under the current owners landscape architects Oehme van Sweden designed a large pond with native plants and a recirculating water system that includes a waterfall and stream, added white pebbles to the driveway and pleached the beech around the tennis court.
Boxwood Farm has four acres of lawn interspersed with mature maple and other trees and huge flower beds. Perennial flowers include Russian sage, buddleia, lavender, ligularia, liriope, echinacea, penstemon, rudbeckia, Joe Pye weed and ornamental grasses; shrubs include boxwood, hydrangea, azalea, viburnum and knock-out roses. Ficus trees are planted out each year near an antique wall fountain in a small garden room of the patio, then dug up and kept in the greenhouse over the winter. An adjoining small room has a sundial, stellata magnolia and hydrangea. The lawn to the south of the house is intersected with stone pathways that divide it into diamond and triangular patches. Numerous stone planters are filled with lavender and agapanthus or white lantana in the summer and violas in cooler seasons. There is a raised garden surrounded by a picket fence set on a low dry stone wall that has a wooden grape arbor and boxwood parterres filled with white tulips, dwarf alliums, cardinal flowers, salvia, apple mint and strawberry plants, depending on the season. In a nearby 15 by 21 foot raised garden vegetables and flowers for cutting are grown. Another vegetable and fruit garden was added in the service area, once the site of another house on the original 179 acre estate. Woodland gardens border the driveway and a bridle paths recalls the polo matches held on the property in a previous era.
Persons associated with the garden include Hugh A. Murray and estate of (former owners, 1922-circa 1935); Catherine B. Hickox (former owner, 1935-1970); Charles V. Hickox and estate of (former owners, 1970-circa 1982); Paul Guez (former owner, circa 1982-circa 1989); GOV agencies (former owners, circa 1990-1997); Julian Peabody (1881-1935) of Peabody, Wilson & Brown (architect, 1922); Ellen Biddle Shipman (1869-1950) (landscape architect, 1922); Umberto Innocenti (1895-1968) (landscape architect, 1937- ); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1946-1970); Charles A.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The landscaping for Groton Place was designed in the 1930s by Umberto Innocenti and Richard K. Webel, featuring uninterrupted axial passages with stopping places but no feeling of enclosure. Since then the trees on the property have matured, the serpentine yew hedge has filled in, and the original oval rose garden has been converted to flowering shrubs. A ha-ha separates the house and the ornamental gardens from horse pastures. A pinetum shades the rectangular swimming pool, and woodlands on the property are filled with native trees and shrubs. A mature cedar allée leads to the stables, the one example of a passage that ends in a structure. Architects McKim, Mead & White designed a house and outbuildings at Groton Place in 1912, but that house was razed in 1948 and another Georgian house on the property built in the 1930s is the residence of the current owners.
In 1968 a parcel of 250 acres of land was sold to a golf club, and the remaining 108 acres of Groton Place were placed in a conservation easement for protection.
Persons associated with the garden include William Willis (deed holder, 1700s); members of the John Titus and Jacob Hicks families (former owners, 1700s-circa 1895); Robert Dudley Winthrop (former owner, 1895); Beekman Winthrop (former owner, 1912); Grenville L. Winthrop (former owner, 1940); Robert W. Winthrop (former owner, 1943-1997); Henry Renwick Sedgwick (architect, 1932); McKim, Meade & White (architects of former house and stables, circa 1912); Umberto Innocenti (d. 1968) & Richard K.Webel (d. 2000)(landscape architects, 1930s).

General:
The gardens for this 23 acre property were reconceived by Nelson Byrd Woltz into zones for the body, mind and spirit, with each section divided longitudinally. The park section contains many native trees; the garden section includes the entrance court, seven distinct rooms and a formal vegetable garden with a greenhouse; the forest has a pine and fern grove; water encompasses the swimming pool and a large pond with a pagoda on an island; the field has the tennis court, cutting garden and a golf green with sand traps. Repeated features in the formal gardens include allées, sheared hedges, brick and bluestone hardscapes, oversize urns and pots planted with either seasonal flowers or vines, and flowering trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials with white blooms predominating. There are brick pillars at the entrance gate that are repeated at the end of the driveway. A field of daffodils and redbuds has a path mowed through for strolling in the spring. Layers of shrubs that surround the rectangular lawns at the arrival court include white hydrangea, lilac, boxwood, and viburnum, with Russian sage and pachysandra as the lower story and three large magnolias above. Behind the house a blue stone path and steps lead to a bluestone terrace garden with arborvitae in the corners, white rhododendron, white Japanese anemone, and shaped boxwood all surrounding a circle of grass. A rectangular white garden with benches at either end contains tree peony, white bleeding heart, hydrangea, Japanese anemone and ferns. The secret garden enclosed by a brick wall has a gravel center court with a large urn that is replanted each season, a cement bench under a kousa dogwood, white tulips and bleeding heart, rhododendron and hydrangea. Outside the wall there is a bed planted with two rows of Japanese stewartia.

A formal lawn has a reflecting pool in the center, allées of pollarded sycamore on two sides, and shaped boxwood at the far end. Another allée of yoshino cherry and large planted pots along the long walk leads to a walled formal vegetable and flower garden with a greenhouse. Teak tuteurs are planted with peas in spring followed by tomatoes. Apple and pear trees are espaliered on serpentine brick walls. Teak lattice gates attached to one wall can swing out to support climbing roses or other vines. Nearby a pine and fern grove lost many trees during Hurricane Sandy but has an understory planted with dogwood, rhododendron, hay scented fern, Virginia bluebells, beech, redbud and mayapple. Grass steps with stone risers lead to the swimming pool with low stone walls. A hot tub set in stone is flanked by beds of perennials. Next to the pool there is a playing field with blue painted benches that look towards the fish-stocked pond. Japanese style bridges lead to two islands in the pond, one of which has the Chinese style pagoda and a weeping cherry. The other island is planted with river birch. Along the boundary of the property there is an allée of silver maple that leads to a circle of clipped hornbeam and the tennis court. There is a cutting garden next to a shed, and beyond that lies the golf green complete with sand traps.

Persons associated with the property include: Charles Addison Blackwell, Esq. (former owner, 1929-1937); Frederick Chauncey Tanner (former owner, 1937-c.1950); Joseph A.

Place:
Clifton (Roslyn Harbor, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- North Hempstead -- Roslyn Harbor
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site maps, and historical background.
Former Title:
Sycamore Lodge
General:
The original property was divided into thirds. One named Locust Knoll (now Mayknoll); one (the original Clifton) renamed Willowmere; and one renamed Clifton in honor of the original Clifton ( renamed Sycamore Lodge in 1917). The present owners changed the Sycamore Lodge property name back to Clifton. The gardens at Clifton, an 1862 Gothic Revival house, were designed in 1917 by Olmsted Brothers. In 1986, the present owners removed the dead and dying yews and rhododendrons. They replanted it as a re-creation of a mid-Victorian garden, using modern cultivars. The emphasis now is on climbing roses--some fifty varieties--shrub roses, hydrangeas and Victorian bedding out, plus a large collection of period garden furniture and ornament.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Joseph Hicks (former owner, 1861); Ann Eliza Cairns (former owner, 1861-1866); Blanche Cairns Willis (former owner, 1866-1917); John M. and Nevada Wills Demarest (former owners, 1917-1932); General J. J. Pershing (former resident, 1920-1921); Lucille Demarest (Mrs. Lester E.)Brion (former owner, 1932-1950); Glenn E. and Elizabeth Laird Riggs (former owners, 1950-1957); Frank C. and Catherine Bickford Fahnestock (former owners, 1957-1986); and Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects, 1917-1923).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, narrative garden description, features plan, and copy of plan for rose garden (1927).

The Harrimans hired the Olmsted Brothers firm to design their 71-acre property in Brookville, New York. The estate was characterized by natural plantings of trees and shrubs; open vistas; wooded paths; water features; a walled garden; and a rose garden. After former owner, Albert Smith, died in 1936, the estate was subdivided and sold. The house was torn down, and a much smaller Cape Cod style frame house was built on part of the foundation. The gardens remained, but fell into disrepair. The current owner is in the process of restoring the garden according to the Olmsted plans.
Persons and Organizations associated with the garden include: Philip W. Livermore (former owner, ca. 1910-1918); Joseph W. Harriman (former owner, 1918-?); Albert L. Smith (former owner, ?-1936); Robert Lee Henry (former owner, 1945); Margaret Bayne (former owner); Mary W. Harris (former owner, 1956-1973); Hoppin and Koen (architects, ca. 1910); Beatrix Farrand (landscape architect, ca. 1910); Sir Alfred C. Bossom (architect, 1918); Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects, ca. 1920); James F. Dawson and Percival Gallagher (landscapers); and Elizabeth Thompson (garden designer, 1991-present).
