Place:

Wild Moor (Newport, Rhode Island)
Scope and Contents:
This file contains 20 digital images and 1 folder.
General:
Established in 1887, Wild Moor (also known as Berry Hill) is a woodland and natural landscape planted with native species on 22 acres. It has been in the same family for over 100 years and is protected by a land trust by new owners. Wild Moor sits on the second highest point on Aquidneck Island, overlooking Narragansett Bay, the Newport Country Club, and before the extensive planting of trees, the town of Newport and its harbor.

The garden was cultivated by the first owners, Walter and Mary Howe. Water penned a book of essays titled, 'The Garden.' After Walter's death Mary married Arnold Hague, a geologist and amateur botanist. She attended botany courses at Columbia University and the couple began to plant specimen trees, shrubs, fern landscapes, a rock garden, swaths of crocus, trout lilies and narcissus. The added acreage and constructed a tennis court, greenhouses, stone garden sheds and a rose house.

Mary Howe Hague was the first president of the Newport Garden Club. Club members were invited to the property's spring flowering in 1914 and it was open to visits by members throughout the family's ownership of the estate.

Donald MacKay Fraser, a coachman promoted to gardener, oversaw Berry Hill from 1932 to 1976. A Scottish immigrant, he was not trained in horticulture, but overtime became a knowledgeable gardener who sought advice from other gardeners including other Scots working on Newport's grand estates. MacKay's era saw the gradual clearing of the land and construction of structures including a stonewall-enclosed "Little Garden," "Loch Fraser," a catchment pond, the "Shanty," a wooden shed perched atop fitted with a small fireplace and baby grand piano for Mary Carlisle Howe, an accomplished composer and one of the founders of the National Symphony Orchestra.

The property was sold in 2020 and renamed Wild Moor, the windswept garden, with mossy dells, rock-strewn lawns and panoramic vistas.

Persons associated with the property include: Walter and Mary Ann Bruce Howe (former owner, 1887); Walter Bruce Howe (former owner, 1923); Mary C. Howe (former owner, 1954); Bruce Howe (former owner, 1959); Berry Hill Nominee Trust (former owner, 1992); Samuel Parsons (unknown role, 1887); Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect of subdivision/sited the house); McKim, Mead, and White?

Appleford/Parsons-Banks Arboretum (Villanova, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Villanova
Scope and Contents:
The folders include a brief description of the garden, a plan that locates different garden features, a slide list, a brochure, and photocopies of images of the garden.
General:
"Appleford is an excellent example of early Pennsylvania farmhouse architecture situated on 22 beautifully landscaped acres in Villanova, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. During the late [1800s], the property was known as Prospect Hill but later became known as Appleford because of the then existing apple orchard. Today, the landscaping and first known gardens on the property consists of a boxwood maze, a walled boxwood garden, a rose garden and fountain, a walled flower garden, and an allée of Cornus kousa trees. Scattered among ponds and streams can be found gorgeous copper beeches, rhododendrons, tropical hibiscus and lantana standards."
"Appleford was originally a land grant by William Penn in 1682 to James Moore and over the years it increased in size to seven hundred and twenty-three acres. In 1926, the house and twenty-two acres were purchased by Annabel and Lewis Parsons at which time the architect, Richardson Brognard Oakie, was engaged to restore the house which gave coherence to the existing structure without compromising its historic integrity. Oakie added the service wing behind the formal boxwood maze and modernized the house with heat and plumbing. He also connected to the main house the tannery, the oldest building on the property, which is now called the puppy house."
"Thomas Sears was hired to draw up landscape plans. At the time there was only a small pond and Sears is responsible for enlarging the pond and adding a pond, the waterfalls, garden and greenhouse. Surrounded by hedges the rose garden also contains a lily pond with a fetching fountain. A few steps up from the rose garden is the walled flower garden which has in it a handsome purple martin house. Steps lead up to the terrace by the house and another set of rounded steps at the opposite end of the garden lead down to a grassy walk near the stream. Looking to the future, a nature walk through the grounds is planned."
"In 1973, Appleford was left by Annabel Parsons' will to Lower Merion Township in trust for the citizens of Lower Merion. Today, the Township works with The Appleford Committee in maintaining the property where wedding receptions and parties are frequently held on weekends. The terrace is now completely tented for these events. The house is open to the public one or two days a year while the grounds are open daily for the Township residents to enjoy."
Persons and firms associated with the property include: James Moore (former owner, received a land grant from William Penn in 1682); Elizabeth and Philip Krickbaum (former owners, 1780); Peter Pechin (former owner, 1794); Moro Phillips (former owner, 1877); Frederick Phillips (former owner, 1893); Villanova Land Co. (former owner); Annabel and Lewis Parsons (former owners, 1926-1973); Thomas Sears (landscape architect, 1926); Richard Brognard Oakie (architect, 1926).

River High (Cincinnati, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Hamilton County -- Cincinnati
Scope and Contents:
The folders include work sheets, copies of landscape plans, newspaper and periodical articles, additional visual images, and planting lists.
General:
"River High" represents one of Cincinnati's most characteristic architectural types: the large house set on a wooded hill-top and oriented toward a view of the Ohio River Valley. Built in 1912, the house combines English Georgian and American Colonial Revival with influences of the Arts and Crafts style. "River High" is perceived at first as a long, substantial, dark red brick mass with the original slate roof, lying athwart a shallow bowl of lawn, with the drive winding down to the entrance and sweeping back to the road. The architects' intent was to block the view until the house had been penetrated; when the riverscape appears at the end of the central hallway. The house consists of three main blocks. The lower porch on the left opens onto the reconstructed formal garden that extends the axis of the house eastward. The lower porch leads out onto the lawn that descends gradually through a formal parterre with a pool and fountain. Symmetrical plantings frame this lower lawn. In 2005 the front arrival courtyard was transformed and is now centered with the formal front entrance in keeping with the symmetrical Georgian style of the house. The new design features a fountain with waterfall and a sculpture of two great blue herons as well as seasonal display beds for annuals, a serpentine retaining wall, landscape lighting, and a unique bench sculpture. Completing the picture are custom-designed wrought iron gates, 19th-century Italian urns, and ornamental and shade trees.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: George H. Warrington (former owner, 1912-1951); Rosemary Sawyer Richardson (former owner, 1951-1989); Albert Davis Taylor (landscape architect, 1917); Eleanor H. Christie (landscape architect, ca. 1917-1951?); Dalton W. Battin (landscape architect, 1980); Stu Hoffman, Natorp Landscape Organization, Inc.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plan and real estate flyer.
General:
The house dates to 1690 and was expanded in 1941. Former owners, the Shepley's, moved the barn and attached it to the salt box house. They also planted the yews, lilacs and possibly the older rhododendrons. A perennial garden is "lost." A cement pond , known as the "doze bowl," dates to the Shepley's former ownership. A swimming pool was installed in the late 1970s. Landscape designer, Ingrid Wagner, designed and planted the area between the pool and the house with hollies, azalea, mountain laurels and crab apples. George Sherwood created the "Dancer" sculpture in one of the perennial beds.
People and/or firm(s) associated with this property include: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sheply (former owners and architect of expansion, ca. 1940-1963); Sam and Martha Hoar (former owners, 1963-1987); Ingrid Wagner (landscape designer); and George Sherwood (sculptor).
