Scope and Contents:

Materials relating to the public gardens located in Altanta, Georgia. The folder includes slide list, brochures, excerpts from publications featuring the gardens, and a description and worksheet completed by a GCA researcher. The gardens are noted for its walled boxwood garden that terminates in twin pairs of fantastic Ionic columns supporting broken pediments. The gardens are owned by the Altanta Historical Society.
General:
"The boxwood garden is located to the south of the house, acting as a cross axis and transition between the facades at the front and rear of the house. There is a dual stylistic nature of Italian themes and filtered through English experience."
"There is a fountain at the center of the cross axis of paths. Urns flank the garden's side entrances, and were decorated with pieces of lava to give it the look of Italian ruins. There are parterres, defined by clay roof tiles, and planted with perennials. The garden paths were made of a buff colored gravel, and the stucco was tinted to make the house appear aged. The gardens were restored to the 1928 design in 1997."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Edward H. Inman (former owner, 1928 to 1965); Philip T. Shutze (architect, designer, 1928); Eleanor Weller (photographer); Spencer Tunnell, II (landscape architect, 1997).
