General:
The five acre property on a steep hillside had been landscaped in the 1930's by Fletcher Steele who divided the upper portions near the house into horizontal terraces, including a lawn terrace for entertaining reached down a few stone steps, a veranda with a shaded loggia behind and to the side of the house, a wisteria covered pergola that disguised the service area, a sunken garden, and a lily pond with one side tucked into the rocky terrain. In 1967 Catherine Hull found shallow soil, a rock ledge and woodlands overgrown with invasive vines along with the strong lines of the hardscape. Most of that hardscape was retained but plans for an English style flower garden were scrapped and the gardener/owner studied and planted rock garden borders with alpines and woodland gardens with shade-loving perennials and shrubs. The retaining wall on the lawn terrace was dismantled and replaced with tufa, a porous volcanic rock, packed with peat and compost, then planted with gentian, alyssum, aquilegia, anemone, dianthus, papaver and other favorites creating a 50-foot long border. A second large bed was planted in the sunken terrace below a wall. Woodland canopies on the approach to the house and on the steep slope below were raised and lightened with under plantings of small bulbs including cyclamen and spring flowering trees and shrubs. Steele's lily pond was cleared of plants and rechristened as a reflecting pool for the plantings along the edges.

A statue of Neptune from the Steele garden remained and looked over the pond and nearby Massachusetts Bay. Around a key outcrop Hull planted mugho pine, juniper, cotoneaster and European ginger. The rock outcrops alongside the reflecting pool were planted with Japanese maples, petasites, hosta and primroses for spring bloom. There was a kitchen garden and composting facility with separate bins for horse and cow manure, seaweed mulch and oak leaves. While working on her gardens for 30 years Catherine Hull became an authority on alpine plant growing and propagation, lectured and belonged to many gardening societies including The American Rock Garden Society.

Persons associated with the garden include: Henry L. and Ida A. Higginson (former owners, -1896); Alice Weston Smith (d. 1903), Pauline W. Smith (former owners, 1896-1910); Anna Dwight Howard (former owner, 1910-1924); Caroline R. and William Hill (former owners, 1924-1931); Mary and William Kennard Kenly (former owners, 1933-1946); Katherine A. and Richard S. Russell (former owners, 1946-1967); Harry H. and Catherine Hull (former owners, 1967-2006); Fletcher Steele (1885-1971) (landscape architect, 1934-1939).

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.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The original Massachusetts farmhouse expanded and glorified by architect Henry Davis Sleeper (1878-1934) was demolished but the bones of the late 1920s- early 1930s gardens designed by Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (originally Shurtleff, b.1870-1957) and Sidney Nichols Shurcliff (b. 1906-1981) remain, including the octagon garden, the lily pond and Chinese Chippendale style summer house, the octagonal Williamsburg style tool house, and the painted trompe l'oeil garden alcove. The original vegetable garden is much smaller, now fenced and planted in raised beds, with the rest of that garden room replaced by a swimming pool and pool house after 1980. The latticework fencing and treillage garden house in the octagon garden have been restored and left bare; once they were draped with vines and blue morning glories. Mature shaped yews and hydrangea borders are featured now in place of the old-fashioned flower gardens planted in the 1930s.
In the original design garden rooms surrounded the centrally-located house with paths radiating from that house; the current house is on the site of the carriage house in one corner of the 2.3-acre property, alongside the circular drive designed by the Shurcliffs. A summer porch on the current house overlooks the 75-foot long lily pond and a crabapple orchard that was planted on the site of the Sleeper house. The original pink marble fountain from the old-fashioned garden has new plumbing, the opening to the large lawn has been expanded to admit a riding mower, and the trompe l'oeil garden alcove has been restored.
Persons associated with the garden include: Grace M. Edwards and Hannah M. Edwards (former owners, 1917-1946); Russell and Katharine Burrage (former owners, 1946-1949); John and Florence Lindsay (former owners, 1949-1981); Leslie Huntoon (former owner, 1981-2001); Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (changed from Shurtleff), ASLA (landscape architect, 1928-1932); Sidney Nichols Shurcliff, ASLA (landscape architect, 1929-1932); Henry Davis Sleeper (architect of original house,1928-1932); Alton Bynum (gardener, 1981-2003).

General:
Named after a slave who planted a flower garden on this rock ledge long before the town formerly known as Prides Crossing became popular for vacation homes for Bostonians, this property with its shingle style house was built in the 1880's with large windows facing the ocean view. However, the first owner did not install a garden. The second owner built a 3,400 square foot formal garden away from the house, walled with native stone and hidden from view on the four acre property. Comprised of a rectangle and a circle, the geometrically organized space was on two levels connected by stairs. In the 20th century the lower circular garden was shaded by a hemlock grove and featured a central pond with Henri Crenier's boy and turtle fountain sculpture. A flower border with anemones, foxgloves, lupines, gas plants, bugbane, iris and heliotrope was planted between the rough stone walls and patterned path of Majorcan pebbles that was installed, circa 1920. The rectangular upper garden had a wall fountain and tea house at one end with boxwood edged beds of roses, phlox, peonies and foxgloves with a heliotrope standard in the center. English ivy and climbing hydrangeas grew over the walls.
By 2012 when the most recent restoration of the garden was begun the rose and perennial beds were long gone, having been shaded out and replaced by lawn by an intervening owner. Shade loving perennials including astilbe, foxglove, lupine, and heliotrope were planted around the perimeter of that lawn. The lawn in the lower circular garden, now in full sun, was edged with pink dianthus and catmint. Korean dogwood and boxwood were planted on the rise between the two gardens, climbing roses were planted to climb the walls, and clematis was planted to climb the new arches over the gates. This restoration kept the hardscape walls, wall fountain, built-in bench and belvedere (tea house) and was completed in 2014.
Persons associated with the garden are General Charles Greeley Loring, Jr. (1828-1902) (former owner 1881-1902); Quincy Adams Shaw (former owner, 1902-1960); Sarah Pemberton Shaw (former owner, 1902-1945); Lydia Eliot Codman Shaw (former owner, 1947-1966); Samuel Eliot Codman (former owner, 1966-2008); William Ralph Emerson (1833-1917) (architect, 1881-1883); Arthur Little (1852-1925) & Herbert W.C. Browne (1860-1949) (architects of additions, 1903-1905); Henri Crenier (1873-1948) (sculptor, 1910); Laura Gibson (landscape architect, 2012- ).

General:
The 55 acres acquired in 1950 by the Seamans family comprised the upland area with house, woodland, meadow and pond, and the low-lying wetlands and sandy beachfront. For most of their history these two sections had been separate. The first recorded owner of the upland was Cornelius Larcom, of French Huguenot descent, who acquired it for farmland in the early 1700s. It remained a working farm and family homestead for five generations of Larcoms who lived in the homestead until 1890. Although the original homestead was replaced by a larger house in the 19th century, an historic log cabin remains. It was once quarters for slaves belonging to David Larcom who died in 1775. Juno, one of his female slaves, was freed and continued to live on the property. When the Boston & Maine Railroad extension reached Beverly Farms in 1890, the value of the property soared and was split up into two and purchased separately by 1907. Eventually, the two properties were consolidated into today's "Sea Meadow," but there were virtually no changes over the next century.
Overlooking Massachusetts Bay, the 18-acre garden boasts whimsical designs by its former owner, Eugenia "Gene" Merrill Seamans. Plant material in formal beds, near the house, are carefully chosen, as well as wildflowers, native shrubs and grasses which densely cover the transition to meadow and pond. On the grounds are informal adaptions of formal elements, such as an alleĢe of lindens with a hint of geometry; a folly, that floats above an outcropping, accessed along a hidden path of alpines; and an extensive herb garden nestled in a rocky ledge by the kitchen doors. In the wetlands is a rustic footbridge which crosses the tidal creeks, dotted by berry bushes and banks of towering pink and white mallows.
Persons associated with the garden include the Larcom Family, (former owners, 1730-1853?); the Dexter Family (former owners, 1885-1920); Augusta Putnam (former owner, 1920-1945); Oliver Ames (former owner, 1945-1950); Robert & Eugenia Seamans (former owners, 1950-2010); H. J. Collins & Associates (pool & tennis court designer, circa 1980); Beverly Benson Seamans (sculptor, 1970-1990); Austin Lydon (garden assistant, 1951-1965); Dick & Sylvia Forgit (garden assistants, 1966-1986); Bob & Cindi Bell (garden assistants, 1987-2011).

Place:
Ship Oak Farm (South Hamilton, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Essex County -- Hamilton -- South Hamilton
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, garden plan, plant list, and copies of garden tour brochures.
General:
The name of the farm comes from the timber that was cut here for the shipbuilders of nearby Essex. The farm was in the Dodge family for over 100 years; and the house dates from 1760. When it was purchased by the present owners in 1976, there was no lawn or garden, just pastures and old trees. The vegetable garden in a former paddock beside the barn was the first project. The old tack room is the present gardening workroom. The gazebo was added in 1989 to reduce the garden area. Gradually, shrubs, ground covers, native plants and an 80-foot perennial border have been added around the house. David Austin roses are planted in a separate garden behind the shed. The hay fields are maintained and cut by a local farmer.
Person(s) and organization(s) associated with the property: Harold Willcox (former owner, 1970-1976); and Thomas and Francis Meyer (former owners, 1955-1970).

Scope and Contents:

General:
Located on 4 acres this flower garden was originally a pig farm. Sometime after 1981, a devastating fire destroyed the house and killed surrounding vegetation. All that remained was the barn. The current owners purchased the property in 1984 and a year later eight trailer loads of loam were brought in and hand-sifted for garden beds and borders that wrap around the property and its natural granite elements. The garden includes a full sun perennial garden, a shade garden, an antique rose garden, a meadow garden, and a small orchard of miniature fruit trees. These gardens feature flowering shrubs, perennials, bulbs and self-sowing biennials that are harvested regularly during eight months of the year to provide distinctive materials for the owner's floral design business located in the barn. Second generation woodlands lay beyond the developed spaces.
Roses, hydrangeas, peonies, astilbes, lady's mantle, Solomon's seal, catmint, tulips and hosta leaves may be grown for commercial floral arrangements but the gardens are designed to enhance the setting rather than traditional cutting gardens planted in rows. Inside the farmer's stone wall along the road there is a deep border of perennials and flowering shrubs. A curving pea stone driveway is bordered by birches, pines and dogwoods under planted with shade loving perennials. A formal oval rose garden with antique varieties as well as David Austin and other hybrids is protected by a lilac hedge, with boxwood globes and an antique gate at three entrances. More flower borders line the driveway up to the house culminating in a rose covered trellis. There is an herb garden with lavender that is nearly 30 years old, and thorn less blackberries and a fruit orchard nearby that contains apple, plum, peach and pear trees planted in 1986. Another shade garden with hydrangea edging the path leads to the woodlands and a dining terrace.

A fruit orchard of apple, plum, peach and pear and thorn less blackberries was started in 1986. Another shade garden with hydrangea edging the path leads to the woodlands and a dining terrace.
A sculpture of a goat and birdbaths by Roger DiTarando are placed in the gardens. Another feature is a sculpture of Beatrice by Brizzolesi.
In 2016 a raised bed garden for vegetables, cutting flowers and herbs was designed and built on a sunny slope behind the barn. It is fenced with birch poles and patterned panels with mesh and wires to support espaliered apples and keep out predators. There is a brick and stone custom made compass rose outside the gate, brick walkways between raised beds, and a tuteur sunk in gravel.
Persons associated with the garden include Nathaniel Hildreth (former owner, before 1854); Albert J. Lucas and Grace A. Lucas (former owners until 1947); Carl and Florence Wentworth Wilson (former owners, 1947-1983); Judson Wilson (former owner, 1982-1983); Architects Development Corporation (former owner, 1983-1984); Brizzolesi (sculptor, circa 1929); Jim Velleco (architect, 1984-1985); Priscilla Randall (trellis designer); Roger DiTarando (sculptor); Pauline Runkle (garden designer, 2017- ); Ed Mota (built birch fence and compass rose, 2017).
The North Shore Garden Club facilitated the 2014 and 2019 submissions of this garden's documentation.

Old Farm (Wenham, Massachusetts)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, historical images, and biographical and other information.
General:
Old Farm has a sunken and enclosed garden designed in 1912-1913 by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the Colonial Revival style to complement the 17th century farm house, described as a cloistered space within the more than one hundred acres of fields and woodlands that comprise this property. The garden was one of Shipman's earliest documented professional commissions, a rectangular plot sub-divided by stone and gravel walks into smaller rectangular beds surrounded by a low dry stone wall. At the far end there is a stone apse or excedrae with room for outdoor seating and a lily pond, now dry. Shipman's original stone terrace directly behind the house, stone walkway down the middle of the garden, and stone steps that lead up to the excedrae have grown over with grass and the American elm trees that shaded the enclosed garden have been replaced by other mature trees. The flower beds have been retained in their original shapes and siting, and have three distinct seasons of blooms: first daffodils, followed by irises, phlox and peonies, then fall asters.
The original 17th century house had rooms on either side of the chimney in front with a lean-to rear section. In the late 19th century the rear section was raised to two stories, and in the early 20th century the house was restored by preservation specialist Joseph Everett Chandler. Ellen Biddle Shipman added trellises for vines and a garden in front of the house planted with boxwood, roses and oleander.
Persons associated with the garden include: John H. B. Kent (former owner, 1836-1910); Benjamin F. and Adelaine L. Peach (former owners, 1899-1910); Alanson L. and Frances Pomeroy Daniels (former owners, 1910-1933); John S. and Mary B. Amory (former owners, 1933-1961); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1912-1913); Joseph Everett Chandler (preservation architect, 1915); Lawrence Tennis (gardener, 2004- ); Beverly Benson Seamans (1928-2012) (sculptor).
