Hampstead (Tunstall Station, Virginia)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles about the property.
General:
The Federal style house was built ca. 1825 by Colonel Conrad Webb, and overlooks the Pamunkey River. Some colonial era plantings on the property predate the house. There was a terraced garden leading to the river, at one time called the most elaborate in the state. The property was planted with magnolia trees, crape myrtle and boxwood bordered garden beds that contained old-fashioned flowers, and also had undisturbed old-growth forest trees.
The red brick house has identical porticoes in the front and back that are supported by four two-story columns, in the style identified with Adams. Also there are walls on the property built of red brick. The original roof parapet, of early 19th c. design survives and was studied as a model for the restoration of Virginia's capital building in Richmond, in the 1980s when the property was owned by Mr. and Mrs. William J. Wallace. An overseer's house with wooden siding also was found on the property.
Persons associated with the garden include the Webb family, Colonel Conrad Webb (former owner, 1825- ) and Mr. and Mrs. William J. Wallace (former owner, 1950s-1980s).

Rochambeau House (Providence, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Providence County -- Providence
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of garden designs with planting plans, black and white photographs of the garden, black and white and color photocopies of images of the garden and Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, photocopies of articles about the house and garden, an unpublished 1990 paper by Lisa Hartjen entitled "The Gardens of 84 Prospect Street," notes on the garden by Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, a photocopy of Marjorie Sewell Cautley's 1937 consultant report, and correspondence and other information relating to the garden and Mary Elizabeth Sharpe.
General:
Situated on an irregular two-thirds acre lot, this garden's development began in 1929 under the supervision of its owner, Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, and continued over a period of 55 years. It is now in full maturity. Following Mrs. Sharpe's death in 1985, the property passed to Brown University, where it is now the home of the French Studies and Hispanic Studies departments. It was renamed Rochambeau House for Jean de Vimeu, Comte de Rochambeau, Maréchal de France and commandant of French forces encamped at Providence during the American Revolution. Although some features have changed and trees have been replaced, the design concept still remains one of a French-style garden composed of plants chosen for year-round green interest. Features include a formal, boxwood-edged lawn, paved teraces, stone-paved courts, stone steps and ornaments, paths of diamond pavers, espaliers on house walls, and spring flowering trees surrounding a handsome house. The long, narrow sequence of the west garden descending from formal to naturalized areas and woodland is a highlight.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Mary Elizabeth Sharpe (former owner and landscape designer, 1929-1985); Henry Dexter Sharpe (former owner, 1929-?); Arthur Rice (architect, 1929); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect, 1934); Marjorie Sewell Cautley (landscape architect, 1937); Ralph E. Dinneen (restoration architect, 1985-1987); Kevin Brannon (gardener, 1980 to date); Pat Vetere (Brown University grounds superintendent, current); Parker, Thomas & Rice (architects, 1929); and R. E.

Place:
Lothrop Garden (Knoxville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, garden plans, and a narrative description.
General:
A palette of blues, yellows, whites, pinks, and lavenders invites one to stop, to study, to reflect, and to enjoy the beauty and serenity of a "seasoned" garden that has been developed and maintained over the last three and one-half decades by a horticulturist. The owner is a teacher, who has been the principal participant in designing, implementing, and nurturing beds of perennials, banks of flowering shrubs and ferns, and a meandering woodland garden. The perennial bed contains plants that create a variety of heights, tectures, color, and form. Many of the plants in this bed are made up of many gifts from family members and fellow gardeners.
A firm associated with the garden is Mountain View Nursery (helped with foundation plantings, 1965).

"Once the private estate of the Leslie Cheek family, of the Maxwell House Coffee forturne, Cheekwood is a stunning example of an elegant lifestyle. The three-story neo-Georgian mansion features architectural treasures from some of the great houses of Europe, selected by the Cheeks and their archictect, Bryant Fleming."
"Outstanding ornaments include towering mahogany doors, an Adam mantel of lapis lazuli, a magnificent staircase, brilliant chandeliers, and trompe l'oeil paintings to panel the walls. Today, the 55-acre Cheek Estate is a lasting tribute to one of the wealthiest eras in American history. Its stately mansion, built in 1929 with Tennessee limestone quarried on the property, is surrounded by breathtaking grounds designed by the Cheeks' landscape architect. The original gardens feature marble sculptures, water gardens, bubbling streams and grand vistas."
"Guests continue to marvel at the historical Bryant Fleming landscape. Surrounding his design are 11 principal botanical garden areas - the award winning Howe Wildflower Garden, an Herb Study Garden, the Wills Perennial Garden, the Carell Dogwood Trail and a traditional Japanese Garden. Botanic Hall features horticultural exhibits, flower shows, and the popular Trees of Christmas celebration every December. There is no better place to experience the season of Middle Tennessee."

General:
Hunter's HIll is essentially an old country house whose original owners were accustomed to fox hunting on their estate of 500 acres.

The Gothic style of the house is echoed in qualities of the garden, including a decorative arch of cedar trellis. Boxwood topiary complement antique garden statuary and contemporary sculpture. The overall effect melds old and new, lush plantings and surrounding woodlands, into an elegant whole.

Place:
Gardener's Cottage (Manchester, Vermont)
United States of America -- Vermont -- Bennington County -- Manchester
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and detailed garden plans with plant lists.
General:
This ca. 3.5-acre garden site was originally part of the model working farm on the Wilbur estate. Remains of old foundations, walkways, and stone walls that were once part of the farm and its buildings delineate part of the current garden. The old potting shed and greenhouse (now used as a study) had large glass structures extending out from them. The outlines of these glass structures are still visible on the walls of the remaining buildings and old foundations are still evident on the lawn. The remains of a pool and fountain have become a daylily bed and the old stone wall foundation has become the main garden. The garden takes its name from the fact that the owner's house was once the estate gardener's cottage. Because of the size of the house and its age (ca. 1790), the owner has designed the garden to be small and informal, old-fashioned and casual, like an English cottage garden.
Persons associated with the property include: James B. Wilbur (former owner, 1908-1929); James B. Wilbur, Jr. (former owner, 1929-1933); Mrs. James B. Wilbur, Jr. (former owner, 1933-1973).

General:
Situated between Lynchburg and Bedford, Virginia, Poplar Forest was a nearly 5,000-acre plantation inherited by Thomas Jefferson and his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson from her father, John Wayles, in 1773. Martha Jefferson died in 1782, and it was only in 1806 that Thomas Jefferson began to design and build the Palladian-influenced house and gardens that still exist today. Serving as a retirement retreat during Jefferson's lifetime, the property was sold in 1828, two years after his death. It remained in private ownership until 1983, when a nonprofit corporation acquired it and began a process of archaeological and documentary research leading to its ongoing restoration. Jefferson's landscape design featured a circular road lined by paper mulberry trees, earthen mounds flanking the house, oval shrub beds, and a sunken lawn. Native trees, such as the tulip poplars from which the property takes its name (several of which survive from Jefferson's time), were planted throughout the grounds. The three images in the Archives of American Gardens' collection document the property at the time when it was still a private residence owned by the Hutter family and somewhat altered from Jefferson's original design. In addition, land sales over the years have reduced the size of the property to a mere fraction of its original size.
Persons associated with the property include Thomas Jefferson (architect, landscape architect, former owner, 1773-1826); Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson (former owner, 1773-1782); the Hutter family (former owners, ca. 1828-1946); and Mr. and Mrs. James O. Watts, Jr. (former owners, 1946-1983).

General:
Chatham, a Federal style mansion with numerous outbuildings, was built by William and Anne Randolph Fitzhugh from 1768 to 1771. William Fitzhugh (1742-ca. 1790) was a prominent citizen of colonial Virginia, member of the House of Burgesses, the House of Delegates, and the Continental Congress. The house is set on a hill overlooking the Rappahannock River and the historic town of Fredericksburg. More than 1,200 acres surrounded the house and were farmed by slaves. The property was named for the Earl of Chatham and the house and gardens were English in style. The garden was laid out in terraces leading to the river with a broad Adams style (neoclassical) stairway leading from the house. The original ornamental gardens did not survive occupation by the Union army during the Civil War, but were restored to emulate the style of their original 18th century design in ca. 1924 by landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman when the property was owned by Colonel and Mrs. Daniel B. Devore. Garden features at this time included a terracotta statue of Diana, box edged parterres, extensive rose gardens, Virginia red cedars used as borders, and eight bird gardens with birdhouses and runs for pheasants or peacocks.
The gardens designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman ca. 1924 included extensive flower beds planted for successive display throughout the growing season, beginning with snowdrops and daffodils, and ending with chrysanthemums. There were box-edged beds of Darwin tulips, iris, phlox, delphinium, Madonna lilies, and many other species. There were clipped cedar hedges, an avenue of dogwood, espaliered fruit trees, and painted brick piers with Ionic capitals planted with roses.
Much of Shipman's garden was discontinued in the 1950s during the ownership of John Lee Pratt, although the rose garden and boxed parterres were maintained. Further restoration of the Colonial-era gardens has been carried out since the property was deeded to the National Park Service in 1975. The Garden Club of Virginia funded a fellowship to document the garden in 2006.
William Fitzhugh and descendants owned the property from 1768 to 1806. Major Churchill Jones and descendants owned Chatham from 1806 to 1872, although the family left during the Civil War ca. 1862-1865 while the house was used as headquarters and hospital by the Union army. Oliver Watson and family owned Chatham from 1872 to 1889. Chatham was owned by Albert O. Mays from 1889 to 1900. Fleming G. and Elizabeth H. Bailey were the owners from 1900 to 1909. The Howard and Smith families owned the property from 1909 to 1914. Chatham was purchased by Mark Sullivan in 1914 and sold to Colonel and Mrs. Daniel Bradford Devore in 1920, who then sold in 1931 to John Lee Pratt, who willed Chatham to the National Park Service in 1975. It is now included in the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park and is open to the public.
Persons associated with the garden include William Fitzhugh and descendants (former owners, 1768-1806), Major Churchill Jones and descendants (former owners, 1806-1872), Oliver Watson and family (former owners, 1872-1889), Albert O.

General:
The arboretum was created on the 132-acre farm that was donated to the private pre-K through 8th grade Hill School in 1992. A landscaping committee decided that the mission of the arboretum would be to grow examples of both native and alien trees that have adapted to the region to be used as an environmental teaching facility for children and as a community resource. The initial plan was broken into stages, planting was done over several years, and the vision for the arboretum was that it would look like a country estate in 100 years. Eight distinct areas were identified that would be planted over time with more than 200 species of trees and shrubs in combinations that emphasize differing leaf shapes and bark textures for the children to study. Planning included respect for the instinctive pathways of children pursing daily activities while also promoting appreciation and respect for the natural environment. The arboretum provides habitat for birds and wildlife, another aspect that would be incorporated into the curriculum of the school.
When there was dissatisfaction with the contractors hired for the work members of the committee took charge themselves. There were drainage problems in some areas and the location of differing stands of trees had to be determined in part by soil conditions. Young trees were purchased that were easier to transplant successfully and less costly, although some of the specialty trees had to be kept in the chairwoman's nursery for three years until they were ready to be planted out. Community support included donations of tons of manure and humus from nearby farms.
Persons associated with the garden include Stephen C. Clark, Jr. and Jane Forbes Clark (former owners, 1945-1992); Polly P. Rowley (arboretum designer and committee head, 1992- ); Barry W. Starke (ASLA), Earth Design Associates (landscape architect, 1992-1993); Ian Tindall and Susie Foster, HOH Associates (landscape architects, 1992-1993); Barbara Augenblick, Mike Morency and Karen Hoovler (Hill School committee, 1992-1995); Matthew Vella (gardener, 1992-1998); Bob Dornin and Greg Looney (Hill School grounds supervisor and gardener, 1992-1998).

General:
Major Isaac Hite Jr., who fought with the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, and his first wife Eleanor (Nelly) Conway Madison, a sister of President James Madison, built the Federal style house beginning in 1794, using limestone quarried on the 483 acre property. The landscape plan included groves of trees for shade and was influenced by the less formal 18th century English gardens that complement rather than contrast with the natural setting. The fields would have been planted in grain for livestock, including cattle and Merino sheep. During Hite's lifetime the property was expanded to 7,500 acres and included a distillery and several mills. The house has a south façade of dressed limestone, and is in the pavilion style favored by Thomas Jefferson. There are several outbuildings. The only records of the garden show light foundation plantings around the house and a latticework fence.
During the Civil War, Belle Grove Plantation was the setting of the Battle of Cedar Creek on October 19, 1864, in which Union General Philip Sheridan defeated Confederate General Jubal Early.
The Brumback family owned the property from 1907 to 1929. Francis Welles Hunnewell purchased the property in 1929 and bequeathed it to the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1964.
In 1983, the Garden Club of Virginia voted to restore the gardens at Belle Grove Plantation, using funds raised in their annual garden walks. The gardens were restored to the style of circa 1820. University of Connecticut Professor Emeritus Rudy J. Favretti (Fellow in the American Society of Landscape Architects) designed the restoration. Restoration included pruning the trees to restore light to the house and open the view of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains and replacing the large foundation plantings including diseased boxwoods with low-growing plants. In addition, an overgrown herb garden was converted to a demonstration garden comprised of plants used in cooking, medicine and commerce in the 19th century, with restored latticework fencing on three sides and post and rail fencing on the fourth side.
Belle Grove Plantation, now 283 acres, is operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and open to the public. Sites on the grounds include the ice house, old hall, dairy, smokehouse, blacksmiths shop, demonstration garden, slave cemetery, and agricultural fields. There is also a library of local, architectural, crafts and agricultural history, and an artifacts collection.
Persons associated with the property include Major Isaac Hite (former owner, 1794-1836) and descendents of the Hite family, the Brumback family (former owner, 1907-1929), Francis Welles Hunnewell (former owner, 1929), Rudy J. Favretti (1983, restoration landscape architect) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation (owner, 1964-present)

General:
Gregory-Lincoln Education Center is a fine arts magnet pre-K through 8th grade school on a 15- acre campus with many low-income and food-insecure students. In the 2011-2012 school year 14 raised gardens beds for vegetables, berries and herbs were installed and planted; the curriculum is called the Cultivated Classroom. Students grow organic food that they prepare and eat while learning about sustainability, science, math, reading, social studies and nutrition. Staple crops include squashes, tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage and cauliflower, berries, lettuces, beans and okra, some flowers and herbs. Other vegetables are planted each year on a trial basis. The initial garden has been expanded to include four more raised beds, 20 fruit trees, a chicken coop called The Chick-Inn, a grape arbor at the entrance, and a pollinator garden. The lay-out includes a reading circle, tool shed, compost center, picnic tables, a wash station and benches. Learning about healthy eating is an important aspect of the program, including acquiring food preparation skills for a lifetime, and cooking and learning about careers in the food industry at a nearby restaurant. Helpers in the garden include school staff, Urban Harvest employees, parents, and neighborhood volunteers who participate in a monthly "dig-it" day of weeding, mulching, and additional planting. The Garden Club of Houston supports this program through financial contributions to Urban Harvest, a non-profit that promotes community gardens.
Persons associated with the garden include: Houston Independent School District (owners, 1966- ); Urban Harvest (sponsor, 2011- ); Kellie Karavias (culinary arts teacher, 2011- ); Carol Burton (Urban Harvest coordinator, 2011- ) Names (role and dates of ownership/involvement).
