Historic Spanish Point (Osprey, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Sarasota County -- Osprey
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, brochures, booklets, maps, plant lists, copies of correspondence, and additional information about the history of the site, the gardens and the Palmer family.
General:
This 30-acre site is a unique environmental, archaeological, and historic preserve on the shores of Little Sarasota Bay. It was inhabited by Native Americans for 5,000 years, then briefly by the Spanish, and then by pioneers in the mid-19th century. Between 1910 and 1918 it was the home of Mrs. Potter Palmer of Chicago, who developed the gardens between 1912 and 1918 (the property remained in the Palmer family until 1980 when the site was donated to the Gulf Coast Heritage Association, Inc.). The Palmer-era gardens are one focus of the property today, along with historic and environmental preservation. Mrs. Palmer made "Osprey Point" her winter retreat and a self-sufficient plantation, adding and restoring buildings, walkways, an aqueduct, gardens, and more with architectural features typical of her era. In addition, she bought hundreds of additional acres for farming and investment. She preserved the lovely natural setting of native trees and lush greenery, while adding exotic ornamentals, fruits, and vegetables so capably that new plantings have been basically unnecessary since.
Persons associated with the garden include: John and Elizabeth Webb (former owners, 1867-1911); Frank and Lizzie Webb Guptill (former owners, 1901-1911); Mrs. Potter Palmer (former owner, 1910-1918); the Palmer family (former owners, 1918-1980); Achille Duchêne (landscape designer, 1912-1918); William Prentiss (grounds supervisor, 1917); Rudy J. Favretti (landscape designer, 1990); Herschel Shepard (project restoration architect, late 1980s); Janet Snyder Matthews (project historian, late 1980s); Marion Almy (project archaeologist, late 1980s); John Maseman (conservator, late 1980s); and Nancy Lichtenstein (horticulturist and groundskeeper, 1997 to date).

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Bridge House (Bowling Green, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Wood County -- Bowling Green
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, landscape plan, copy of architect's drawings, history of Roche De Boeuf, and brochure of Georgia and David K. Welles Sculpture Garden at Toledo Museum of Art.
General:
This tree-lined estate property, located on the banks of the Maumee River in Northwest Ohio, overlooks the historic abandoned "Roche de Boeuf Bridge" (a.k.a. "The Old Electric Bridge" and "The Interurban Bridge"). The bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The twelve spans of Roman aqueduct arches set the stage for this "Bridge House" property landscape, sculpture garden, and home design. The architect's plan incorporated the bridge's arched aqueduct design into the upper exterior of the East wing of the home, such that the residence appears to echo the bridge over the reflecting waters below. Carefully pruned little leaf linden trees in allees on either side of this wing also appear to duplicate the geometry of the bridge's arches. Exterior lighting includes illumination of the bridge at night by the homeowners, with spotlights located in trees on the property near the river. The property also features a maple allee at the property entrance; a grove of green and blue spruce trees; raised bed gardens; and library terrace plantings with herbs and hawthorn.
Eight sculptures were donated to the Toledo Museum of Art in 2001. They are located at the "Georgia and David K. Welles Sculpture Garden" on the lawn in front of the museum. Six sculptures were at Bridge House as of 2002.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: Hugh Newell Jacobsen, FAIA (architect and landscape architect, 1980s).
