General:
Reynolda was the county house estate of the founder of R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, Robert Joshua Reynolds, and his wife, Katharine Smith Reynolds, comprising nearly 1,100 acres that included a 38,000 square foot house built for them by architect Charles Barton Keen. Reynolda was primarily conceived by Katharine Reynolds to include a family home with gardens, a village within the estate that housed the twenty families that worked on the self-contained estate, a 350-acre dairy, grain and vegetable farm, a 19-acre golf course with grazing sheep, and woodlands with thousands of daffodils. Before the house and formal gardens were built, Lord and Burnham constructed commercial greenhouses and a large glass conservatory on the property in 1913. Mrs. Reynolds decided to site a four-acre formal garden next to the greenhouses, near the public road, for the benefit of passersby. The first garden designers on the estate were Miller and Buckenham, and then Thomas Sears was brought in to design the viewable greenhouse garden, as well as gardens at the house and boathouse. The boathouse was sited beside the 16-acre artificial Lake Katharine created by Miller and Buckenham's stone-faced dam. The lake has since partially filled with silt and become a wetlands habitat.
Thomas Sears' 1917 formal greenhouse garden was divided into two rectangles, an approximately two-acre formal rose and perennial garden, and next to it another two-acre garden for fruit, flowers and vegetables. Grass panels that divided and surrounded the formal gardens were known as the sunken garden. The original rose garden was divided into four parterres, two planted with roses, one for blue and yellow flowers and the last for pink and white flowers. There were grass panels between the parterres with a double row of Japanese cedar trees on the horizontal axis. Rows of Japanese weeping cherry trees and southern magnolias were planted as a perimeter; later the trees shaded the rose garden to the extent that it had to be replanted when the garden was restored in 1997. Each axis of the two formal gardens ended in an attractive terminus, a feature of many of Sears' designs. These included pergolas and Japanese-styled teahouses for Katharine Reynolds, who wanted to include trees and features from Japanese gardens. Like the rose garden, the design of the fruit and vegetable garden was geometric with a central feature. At the time of its restoration, a large section of this garden was replanted with All-America selection roses, other flowers and herbs.
In the 1930's daughter Mary Reynolds Babcock and her stockbroker husband Charles Babcock bought her siblings' shares in the house and rehired Thomas Sears to redesign the gardens. Renovations to the house included moving the original central entrance to the side of the house, and new gardens were needed in front. A tulip and chrysanthemum garden was designed, with pink, white, blue and purple tulips and forget-me-nots complementing the colors of the new flagstone terrace. Summer flowers included heliotrope, plumbago, salvia, nicotiana, snapdragons and annual phlox, although heliotrope did not flourish in hot weather. Red, yellow, bronze, copper and terra cotta chrysanthemums were planted in autumn. Sears suggested poinsettias, camellias, chrysanthemums, gardenias and begonia semperflorens for a winter garden, but they were not winter hardy and were used for holiday decorations inside the house. Sears also designed a study garden in 1916, which comprises a patio with a recessed pool, stone benches and extensive plantings of rhododendrons and other flowering shrubs, a canopy of flowering magnolias, dogwood and crape myrtles, and an understory of ground covers, lilies, hosta, ferns and daffodils.
Reynolda is now the Reynolda House Museum of American Art. The gardens were donated to Wake Forest University in the 1960's by the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation.
Persons associated with this property include R.J. (Robert Joshua) Reynolds (c. 1850-1918) and Katharine Smith Reynolds Johnston (1880-1924) (former owners, 1909-1924); Mary Reynolds Babcock and Charles Babcock (former owners, 1935-1953); Wake Forest College, later University (owner beginning in 1958); Louis L.

General:
Thomas W. Sears landscape design for Reynolds included parkland that was sub-divided later for residential neighborhoods including this two and one-third acre property. The house was designed by the same architect employed by R.J and Katherine Reynolds, Charles Barton Keen, and the initial landscaping was designed in keeping with Sears' landscape design: natural woodland borders, mature boxwood, periwinkle and ivy ground covers, and flowering shrubs and spring bulbs. The current owners wanted to maintain the historic parkland feel and create more intimate garden spaces for themselves. Starting work circa 2004 their projects included pruning mature trees and shrubs and developing the woodland gardens by adding an understory of flowering trees including dogwoods, cherries, magnolias and crepe myrtles. At ground level in the woodland gardens there are thousands of daffodils, periwinkle and hellebores that can be seen across the lawn. A massive holly arbor off to one side of the house is this garden's signature feature, and a source of winter berries for birds. The Arbor hosts other wildlife, too, including bees, rabbits, deer, opossum and foxes.
Next to the house inside trellised fencing there is a small garden full of roses, ferns and lambs' ear in summer, followed by Japanese anemones. Akebia and climbing hydrangea grow on the fencing which was installed for an earlier garden design, and wisteria is trained up columns at the back of the house. Wooden steps lead to a vegetable and cutting garden, and a new potager for vegetables and flowers is being planned that will be entered through another arbor.
Persons associated with the garden include G.W. Coan, G.W. Coan, Jr. and Mary Wiggins Coan (former owners, 1929-?); Bowman Gray II and Elizabeth Christian Gray (former owners, 1941-?); James A. Gray, Jr. (former owner, 1950-1969); Bowman Gray III and Katherine Gray (former owners, 1969-?); Stuart and Frances Vaughn (former owners, 1970-2004); Willliam Andrew Copenhaver and Anne Phillips Copenhaver (owners, 2004- ); Charles Barton Keen (architect, 1928); Thomas Warren Sears (1880-1965) (landscape architect, circa 1920); Paul F.

Place:
Holly Beach Farm (Annapolis, Maryland)
United States of America -- Maryland -- Anne Arundel County -- Annapolis
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of garden tour descriptions of the property, and other information.
General:
Located on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, Holly Beach Farm was the home of the Labrot family, originally from Louisiana, and active in horseracing circles. The Labrots purchased the property around 1900, and in 1907 built a Georgian-style mansion designed by architect Douglas H. Thomas, Jr. The extensive grounds were landscaped with expansive lawns and garden borders that stretched down to the bayshore. Unique features included a pergola and gazebo done in a rustic work style. The house, which has recently been restored, was sold by the family in 1994, while much of the land was transferred to the State of Maryland in 1944 to create Sandy Point State Park. A more recent land transfer has protected 300 additional acres, which are now under the aegis of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Most of the images in this collection were taken by Thomas W. Sears around 1914, shortly after the gardens were first developed. It is likely that Sears was the landscape architect responsible for designing this job.
Persons associated with the property include Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Labrot (former owners (ca. 1900-1930); Mr. and Mrs. William H. Labrot (former owners, ca. 1930-1950); Douglas H. Thomas, Jr. (architect, 1907); and Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect, 1914).

General:
The slide was made in 1983 and was taken of an earlier image, probably a photographic print produced sometime between 1914 and 1925. Although Pickering Studio [Edgar H. Pickering of Annapolis] is indicated on the slide mount as the photographer, the image is identical to the original glass plate negative in the Archives of American Gardens' Thomas Warren Sears Collection (MD086011), taken in 1914. The Pickering Studio may have prepared a print from the Sears negative.

General:
The lantern slide was made by the John Haworth Company, 1020 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA using a slide manufactured by Eastman Kodak. Glass negative MD056028 was the source image for this lantern slide. This image appeared in the American Institute of Architects (author), The Year Book of the Annual Architectural Exhibition Held by the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the T-Square Club of Philadelphia (Philadelphia: 1915). Although the caption there would seem to indicate that Michael Jenkins was the owner of Edgewood, he was only responsible for commissioning the landscape design and installation.
