Taylor Park (Orange, Virginia)
Scope and Contents:
2 folders and 25 digital images.
General:
Now a public park comprised of walled gardens, memorial plaques, sculpture and open space for town events including the annual Christmas tree the approximately one acre site was developed beginning in 1978. Land was donated to contain memorials for notable colonial Virginians: Colonel James Taylor II and his wife Martha Thompson, who were the great-grandparents of President James Madison, and Lieutenant Governor and explorer Alexander Spotswood (1676-1740). Members of The Dolley Madison Garden Club were instrumental in funding and overseeing the design, donating and planting trees and 4,000 bulbs, and for ongoing upkeep of the gardens every Wednesday for ten years. The Main Street plaza is paved with brick and has brick walls, metal benches, a central round fountain, seasonal planters, ten willow oak trees and a raised bed with dogwood and spring bulbs. Curvilinear gravel paths lead through the Perennial garden planted with ground covers, shrubs and trees. Trees include river birch, hemlock, native and kousa dogwood, tulip poplar, magnolia, red oak, and redbud. Shrubs include azalea, rhododendron, barberry, various hydrangeas, and knock out roses. High brick walls screen out noise and enhance privacy. The Spotswood memorial plaza has plaques on a high brick wall detailing Spotswood's expeditions into the unexplored West and a metal sculpture. There is open space for community gatherings and events, shaded by amur maackia trees. A path through a mounded area planted with large evergreens and understory leads to the South garden, site of the annual community Christmas tree. There is a large metal sculpture of the word LOVE by local blacksmith Stokes of England, a promotion for tourism in the state.
