FW-ASCH-7RR-2767 are field recordings made by Frederic Ramsey on the same field trip that resulted in the Folkways series "Music From the South." Unfortunately, most of the four pages of notes in the tape box don't correspond to the songs on the tape. However, "I'm Too Close" sung by Ella Cash, is found both on the tape, and on one of the typewritten pages in the tape box. And four of the eight songs of the Starlight Gospel Singers are on both this tape and on "The Music From the South, Volume 8: Young Songsters," (FW02657). Based on the four pages of notes, Ella Cash was recorded in Little Rock Baptist Church in Heiberger, AL, on May 2, 1954, and the Starlight Gospel Singers were recorded on at least three occasions in April and May, 1954, in the vicinity or in the towns of Heiberger, Greensboro and Sprott, all in Alabama. Members of the Singers are Nathaniel Benson, Joe Massey, Cleophus Sanders, James Belcher, Leo Holman, Arthur James Gill. The typewritten sheets have been removed from tape box and will be placed in a Frederic Ramsey folder.

General:
A 400 year old Elizabethan manor in England was purchased by Mr. Thorne and dismantled and shipped brick by brick from England to be included in the building of Thornewood. Thornewood, built in 1911, once covered 100 acres, from the American Lake shore to the Tacoma Country and Golf Club. The mountain served as the inspiration for the landscape design. "The mountain at a distance has been brought into the picture by means of long, horizontal lines, by the general contrivance of walks, borders, boundary walls, by the preservation of certain natural trees..." (Howe, 1915) The garden terminated with two arbors united with balustrades. A Japanese garden was planted in two corners near a water garden. Most of the estate was divided into 30 home sites in 1959. In 1982, the house was named to the National Register of Historic Places. By 1988, the property was reduced to three acres on the lake. The current owners use the house, "Thornewood Castle," and property as a bed and breakfast.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. Chester Thorne (former owner, 1910-1927 ); Perry and Connie Palmer (former owners, 1965-1988?); John C. Olmsted of Olmsted Brothers, Landscape Architects (landscape architect, 1910).
Tacoma Garden Club facilitated the documentation of the 1990s photographs of this garden.

General:
"The gardens at Kanawha Salines are particularly interesting as the product of female owners Nelle Coleman Alderson Dickinson and her daughter, Mary Price Dickinson Ratrie, as well as female designers and gardeners." The gardens include an immense American Elm, planted by Mrs. Ratrie as a child and a parterre with box hedges, rosebeds, and herbaceous perennial borders."
"Salt was produced here from 1817 until 1945, and shipped by the Kanawha River and later rail as far as New Orleans and Pittsburgh. The farm fields pasture a small herd of Belted Galloway cattle and a number of 'family' horses and ponies. Mrs. Ratrie's garden center and nursery, 'Terra Salis', is located on the edge of the farm."
"The property features a glorious vista of wooded hills, another of the Kanawha River, and an all-white pond garden reached by an alleĢe of Prunus campanulata 'Okame'. There is a viburnum collection of 16 species/varieties; a 60-foot hemerocallis and narcissus border; several beds of species roses and syringa varieties; many specimen trees, both deciduous and evergreen; and a terrace, overlooking tennis courts, sheltered by a 40-foot pergola covered with wisteria, floribunda, and clematis. The house and outbuildings, including a 'garden' building, barns, storehouses, and cottages, are part of a historic property in continuous ownership by the Dickinson family since the early 1800's."
Persons associated with the property include: William Dickinson, Sr., (former owner, 1840-1863); William Dickinson, Jr. (former owner, 1863-1865); Mr. and Mrs. John Quincy Dickinson (former owners, 1865-1896); Mr. and Mrs. Charles C.

The Frenzel Garden (Fairview, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie County -- Fairview
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, detailed planting lists, and a garden directory excerpt.
General:
The seven-acre Frenzel Garden is known for its extensive plantings of rhododendron, with several hundred mature shrubs including rhododendron maximum dug from the woods in West Virginia and peddled door-to-door during the Depression. All the previous owners of the 1920s German sandstone house installed gardens on the mostly shady property and some of the boxwood, Norway spruce and other non-indigenous trees and shrubs are more than 70 years old. The last owners created 70 distinct garden areas of varying sizes, adding to the tree, shrub, herbaceous perennial and bulb collections. The rhododendron and azalea collection has more than 300 species and hybrid varieties; other collections include more than 130 named varieties of hosta, 100 dwarf conifers, 44 species and hybrid varieties of hydrangeas, more than 25 kalmia hybrids and 21 varieties of magnolia. Southern magnolias, crepe myrtle, camellias and gardenias have been tried out in this zone 6 garden with qualified success.
The property overlooks Lake Erie and was used originally as a lake side retreat. The house and garage were built out of salvaged cobblestones from Erie, Pennsylvania that served as ballast on German ships in the 19th century.
Garden features include a tori gate, gazebo, lathe house, patio and shed.
Persons and groups associated with the garden include: Franklin Patton, Sr. (former owner); Fred and Alma Weber (former owners, circa 1953 - circa 1983); Robert and Kathleen Frenzel (former owners, 1983 - circa 2012).

Hamilton -- Ship Oak Farm

Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
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).

Former Title:
Wellington

Walnut Tree Farm

Cliftons Neck
General:
River Farm was first called Piscataway Neck by Margaret and Captain Giles Brent in 1653. During William Clifton's ownership, the property was known as Cliftons Neck. George Washington bought the property in 1760 to lease. The largest track at this time was called "River Farm." Tobias Lear, a renter, had called the property Walnut Farm. In 1859, a century after Washington purchased the property from Clifton, Charles Augustine Washington sold 652 acres of River Farm to three Quaker brothers, Stacey, Isaac, and William Snowden of New Jersey in order to acquire lumber for the ship building. The Snowdens divided the acreage, then known as Wellington, into three sections. In 1866, 280 acres including the present-day River Farm were sold to three men known as "The Syndicate." A writer from The Washington Sunday Star visited the estate in 1904 and referred to it as "this broken and pathetic house." The Wellington property was subsequently purchased in 1912 by Miss Theresa Thompson, a member of a prominent local family. Miss Thompson made changes and improvements at Wellington, but is was for Malcolm Matheson, who bought the property in 1919, to transform it into the early-20th century country estate we know today. The American Horticultural Society purchased River Farm in 1973 and made it their headquarters. The Society maintains display and test gardens on the 27 acre site. The 1757 main house is furnished in period; and the gardens offer identified plants.
Persons associated with the property include: Captain Giles Brent (former owner, 1653); Giles Brent (former owner); George Brent (former owner); Cliftons of Chotank (former owners 1739); George Washington (former owner, 1760); Charles Augustine Washington (former owner); Stacey, Isaac, and William Snowden (former owners, 1859); "The Syndicate" (former owners, 1866); Miss Theresa Thompson (former owner, 1912); Malcolm Matheson (former owner, 1919); and the American Horticultural Society (owners, 1973-present).

Place:
Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum (Savannah, Georgia)
United States of America -- Georgia -- Chatham County -- Savannah
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and copies of the 1984-85 garden plan and the current garden plan, elevations of the memorial pavilion, and plant lists.
General:
This 13,000 square-foot garden is the largest enclosed garden in Savannah. It is located adjacent to the William Scarbrough House, a classical Regency mansion built in 1819 that houses the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. When the property was acquired in 1972 by the Historic Savannah Foundation the garden was a mass of rubble and tangled vegetation bordered by crumbling brick walls. With major fund-raising by the Trustees' Garden Club, restoration work was begun by grading, hauling in topsoil, installing sprinkler and drainage systems, and repairing and reinforcing the brick walls. Garden club members organized into teams then competed to prepare the best design to complement the period and style of the mansion. The plan chosen featured a large flagstone terrace; a memorial pavilion; side beds with live oaks, magnolias, and smaller shrubs and urns; and benches and walks. By 1997 the foundation had moved its headquarters and the Scarbrough House became the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. Closure by the city of a side street enabled extension of the garden by an additional 35 feet. Subsequent alterations to the 1984-85 Trustees' Garden Club plan have included replacing lawn with a brick terrace, modifying the memorial pavilion, increasing the size of the terrace, and planting pre-1860 era antique roses.
Persons associated with the garden include: William Jay (architect, ca. 1819); William Scarbrough (former owner, ca. 1819); and John McEllen (landscape designer, 1996 to date).
