High Gate House (Fairmont, West Virginia)
United States of America -- West Virginia -- Marion County -- Fairmont
General:
High Gate was the estate of James Edwin Watson, heir to a West Virginia coal dynasty, and was located in his native city, Fairmont, West Virginia. Designed by notable Philadelphia architect, Horace Trumbauer, the twenty-five-room mansion was completed by 1912. Trumbauer's design was in the Jacobethan Revival style, which pulled elements from manor houses of the Jacobean and Elizabethan periods, particularly the use of half-timbered, stucco-clad walls. Also called "Stockbroker's Tudor" style, the mansion and adjacent carriage house were surrounded by immense, ornamental iron gates and fencing, which earned the property its name. Named for the immense iron gates at the entrance of the property.

A frequent collaborator of Horace Trumbauer, Philadelphia landscape architect, Oglesby Paul, designed the grounds. Around the mansion and in the courtyard of the carriage house, Paul employed flower beds, boxed hedges, shrubbery, catalpa, white birch, and magnolia trees. To the rear of the buildings, exotic trees and shrubs highlighted a box garden, tennis court, and a sunken garden, which featured lighting around stone conversation benches. The gardens also included garden ornaments such as a sundial and large bird bath. The regulation, clay tennis court was once the home of the Tiffany Cup Championship games.

Following the death of Watson, the home was sold to the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1929. The renamed it St. Joseph's Villa and used it as a rest home and later a kindergarten. It later became the Ross funeral home and the carriage house became a nursing home. In 1982, High Gate was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was later transferred to the Vandalia Heritage Foundation, an organization promoting historic preservation throughout northern West Virginia.

Persons associated include: James Edwin Watson (former owner), Horace Trumbauer (architect), Oglesby Paul (landscape architect), the Sisters of Saint Joseph (former owner), and Vandalia Heritage Foundation (owner).

Biographical / Historical:
Paul Jenkins (1923-2012) was an abstract expressionist painter and playwright in New York, New York, and Paris, France. Jenkins was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1923, and moved to Youngstown, Ohio as a teenager. After serving in the U.S. Maritime Service and the U.S. Naval Air Corps, Jenkins studied playwriting with George McCalmon at the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University). In 1948, he moved to New York City, where he studied with Yasuo Kuniyoshi at the Art Students League of New York.

Over the course of his career, Jenkins experimented with multiple techniques, including oil on primed canvas, flowing paints, acrylics, watercolor, and mixed media collages. After traveling extensively and meeting many artists, Jenkins ultimately became associated with the Abstract Expressionists. His work gained the attention of other members of the art world and he held solo exhibitions at venues such as the Zoe Dusanne Gallery in Seattle and the Martha Jackson Gallery in New York. Jenkins' paintings were purchased by both museums and private collectors, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Peggy Guggenheim.

In addition to his painting, Jenkins continued to explore other creative endeavors. He experimented with sculpture, producing works for events and permanent displays, including the Sculptors' Symposium at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Sculpture Garden of the Hofstra Museum. His plays, such as Strike the Puma, were published and performed off Broadway in New York City. Jenkins's art served as the backdrop for multiple stage productions, and in 1978, his paintings were featured in the Academy Award nominated movie An Unmarried Woman. Jenkins also collaborated on a number of book projects, including Anatomy of a Cloud, a collection of autobiographical collages and texts.

Throughout his adult life, Jenkins split most of his time between New York and Paris. He continued to create and exhibit new works until his death in New York in 2012.

Marchant S. and Barton H. Reutlinger Garden (Louisville, Kentucky)
United States of America -- Kentucky -- Jefferson County -- Louisville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, photocopy of an article about the project, and other information.
General:
Located on approximately one acre, this property is surrounded by a canopy of trees in a neighborhood designed by the Olmsted Brothers for the Indian Hills Development Company (Olmsted Job Number 07449). The property features a vegetable garden with artistic sculpture and a small pond next to a shaded perennial garden. The house, designed by architect E. T. Hutchins in 1925-1926, is located on an unusual corner lot on a semi-circular road with no obvious point of entry.
When the current owners took over the property in 1984 the property was badly overgrown and there was evidence of a woodland wildflower garden. Since the only entrance to the house was through a driveway at the back of the house, the owners put in a front driveway and walkway up to the entrance of the house. The owners also added two brick terraces at the front and side of the house. A fishpond surrounded by a small perennial garden was added to the rear of the house near the terrace patio. Both the pond and the perennial garden have been enlarged over time.
The original vegetable garden stood near the garage, west of the house. Due to more sun on the east side of the house, a result of fallen trees, the garden was relocated and a woodworking shop now stands in its place. The vegetable garden, anchored by boxwood, is designed in an octagonal shape with a sundial at its center. Deer from the nearby woods are problematic and an eight foot deer fence was put up to keep them out. A screen of hemlocks, dogwood, winterberry, taxis and groundcover was added along the road for privacy. The gardens on the west side of the house were updated and variety of evergreens and hardwood trees were planted around the perimeter of the property as well as a stone retaining wall. Plantings include several different annuals, perennials, reseeding plants, bulbs, ground cover, herbs, shrubs, trees, aquatic plants and tropical plants.
Persons associated with the garden include: Olmsted Brothers (landscape designer of neighborhood, 1914-1962), E.T. Hutchins (architect, 1925-1926), Dr. and Mrs. Charles Maguire (former owners, 1949-1955), Dr. and Mrs. Kelly (former owner, 1955-1974) and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lee (former owners, 1974-1984).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopied book excerpts, and additional information about the house and garden.
General:
The seat of the Drummond family since the 14th century, Drummond Castle is best known today for its elaborate French-inspired parterre garden, laid out in the 1830s by Lewis Kennedy, who had worked at Malmaison in France for Empress Josephine. Designed in the shape of a St. Andrew's Cross, at its heart is an unusual obelisk-shaped sundial dating to the 17th century. Other garden elements, such as fountains, terraces, urns, and statuary, indicate Italian stylistic influences. Although the garden was somewhat redesigned and simplified after World War II, it still contains much plant material reflecting its historic past, including yew hedges, individual yews, and two copper beeches planted in 1842 by Queen Victoria. The property is now under the aegis of the Grimsthorpe and Drummond Castle Trust, established in 1978 to maintain the castle, gardens, and surrounding lands.
Persons associated with the garden include the Drummond family (owners, 14th century to date) and Lewis Kennedy (landscape designer, 1830s).
