Turkey Hill Farm (Manchester, Vermont)
Scope and Contents:
55 digital images (2019) and 1 file folder with a photocopy of cover art of this farm for a 1925 Country Life magazine.
General:
In the 1930's the owners of a farmhouse originally built in 1849 installed gardens around the house including a sunken rose garden, perennial borders, a cutting garden, and a formal terrace with a spring-fed fountain. These gardens were maintained by three generations of the Childs family and by the current owner when the 15-acre property was purchased in 1998. In 2005 a five-acre pasture was developed as a sculpture garden with contemporary works of art and complementary plantings. A dry stream bed (arroyo) that cuts through the property was turned into another garden, planted with iris, Japanese primrose, cranesbill and hosta. Between 2012 and 2015 a woodlands garden with a rustic pergola and hexagonal gazebo and a Japanese garden with a pagoda, French Art Deco gate and arched bridge were designed and installed. Some of the original perennial borders were updated with flowers in bolder colors but antique apple trees, another pergola with benches underneath for appreciating the views, a cider press, and outbuildings including a stone spring house have been preserved. A corn crib was converted into a guest cottage; a larger guest house near the main house has linear hedges and flower beds as well as a reflecting pool on the axis that leads to a sculpture.

The stone walls and hedges are meticulous, lawns are mowed in the crisscrossing pattern, and narrow brick paths have been set into wider mowed grass walkways. Clipped hedges with stone walls or artefacts highlight long views of these grounds toward distant mountains. There are two fenced vegetable gardens and a greenhouse. A large pond has a pond house nearby as well as a small sand beach. The garden has been included in tours sponsored by the Nature Conservancy and used by non-profit organizations for fund raising events. The owner is interested in preserving the property as a public space.

Persons associated with the garden include: F. Nelson and Florence Doubleday (former owners, -1931); Lowrie and Hortense Childs (former owners, 1931-1944); Charles S. and Helen Childs (former owners, 1944-1976); Charles (Pete) and Jane Childs (former owners, 1976-1998); Sylvia and Stanley Stroup (owners, 1998-2017); Stanley Stroup (owners, 2017-); Hortense Childs (house gardens designer, 1930's); North Hill Garden Design (sculpture garden and woodland garden designers, 2008 and 2007-2012); Ray Smith (Japanese garden designer, 2013); Sugar Rock Landscape (hardscape construction, 2008-2014); Janette Morrison and Ernie Dibble (gardeners, 1998- ); David Tamych (sculptor); Rita Dee (sculptor); Richard Erdman (sculptor); Phil Thorne (sculptor); Roger Di Taranto (sculptor); Thomas Ostenberg (sculptor); Mark Chatterley (sculptor); Hans Van de Bovencamp (sculptor); Peter Woytuk (sculptor); George Sherwood (sculptor); Curt Brill (sculptor); Royden Mills (sculptor).

General:
This 10 acre property was established in 1916 and features a wooded hillside that plunges into a natural creekside floodplain. Terraced gardens center around a renovated and expanded 1700s mill house and extensive masonry walls, steps, and walks. The property was founded by Fairman Furness, great-nephew of Philadelphia architect Frank Furness. Originally operating as Upper Banks Nurseries, it was known for displaying large, rare plants. Landscape architect Fletcher Steele was introduced to the Furness after developing the landscape design for Graham Wood's estate. Furness and Steele collaborated to design these garden spaces and highlight rare plants, shrubs, and trees amongst the varying levels of terraces located throughout. Although more than a 100-year-old property, the current owners have maintained its history and classic design features.
The property features many stone hardscape elements. The entrance to the property is marked by stone gateposts with hand forged metal Yucca plants, constructed by sculptor Samuel Yellin. Through the gate is an allee lined with tulip-poplars and ash trees. A stone hexagon folly is situated on the south lawn between Ridley Creek and the gardens, nestled between ferns and Petasites, and the greenhouse is filled with succulents and orchids. A hand-cut stone wall built by Furness in the 1920s protects the perennial garden overlooking the creek. A portion of the stone wall was completely re-laid in 2014. Stone steps lead from the lawn down into the walled garden. At the top of the steps are two stone rabbit sculptures that mark the entrance to this area, with a matching pair of wrought iron Rhododendron gates at the bottom. Spanish steps leading to multiple grassy levels are framed by Heptacodium and rhododendron in the summer. Marble obelisks frame a group of red urns at the top of the steps. The Upper Bank Nursery Office, a small stone building built during the 1940s, is still located on the property. Another stone wall was built to connect the office to the brick pathway to Ridley Creek. A large arch in the wall supports a stone Cheshire cat sculpture. A 100ft. masonry arch bridge, named the "Furness Bridge," spans Ridley Creek. In the 1950s, a waterfall was constructed across Ridley Creek just east of the Furness Bridge.
This property is home to several notable trees including three Pennsylvania State Champions that were measured in 2019 and represent the largest of each species found in the state. These trees include a Firmiana simplex, Magnolia cylindrica, and Magnolia macrophylla. Also deemed notable by PA Big Trees are the Cornus controversa, Cornus kousa, and Stewartia monodelpha. An expansive west lawn features flowering forsythia, weeping cherry trees, magnolia stellata, and Petasites in the spring. A grove of native bamboo is located next to seed-grown weeping cherry trees that hover over sentinels of cryptomeria and chamaecyparis. Magnola grandifloras stand in front of the hillside garden. These trees were initially purchased by Furness after being commissioned by Congress for the Magnolia Tribute Garden near Independence Hall in Philadelphia, but remained on the property after funds fell through.
Persons associated with the garden include: Fairman Furness (former owner and garden designer (1916-1971); Wirt Thompson (former owner, 1971-2010); Fletcher Steele (landscape architect, 1930s); Pierre S. du Pont (horticulturist, 1920s and 1930s); Wirt Thompson (horticulturist, 1970s and 1980s).
This property is featured in Joseph R. Spadea, "Treated Like Family: Designers Go Extra Mile to Rehabilitate Old Pa. Spans," Roads and Bridges. (November 5, 2015).

General:
This was 5 ½ acre garden was established by the current owners in 1986. The garden features a formal Japanese water garden with descending ponds, bridges, and a tea house, as well as woodland areas with meandering paths, rooms, and specimen trees. The entrance to the property is marked by metal gates with fieldstone pillars flanked by Ilex crenata. The border to the entrance is planted with pachysandra, rhododendron, Canadian hemlock, and flowering dogwood. An island of rhododendron and Korean azalea lies between the driveway and the parking circle.
Major hardscape features on the property are the red Japanese Tea House and arch bridge with red and green railings. A lower pond lies at the bottom of the tea house with a nearby waterfall spilling into it. Surrounding the pond are iris and Japanese crabapple. A fountain terrace at the end of the lawn features a round pool with four cherubs seated around it. Two curbed flagstone terraces separated by a curved stone and flagstone bench are bordered with flowering dogwood, Japanese crabapple, Korean boxwood, and evergreen azalea. The view from the terrace features hinoki cypress and mixed hostas and ferns alongside descending ponds. Through the gazebo flanked by annual-filled urns and Rosa 'New Dawn' climbing roses lies a cutting garden divided into four quadrants. The garden is lined with flagstone paths and a circle in the middle featuring a column surrounded by daylily. The front two quadrants are mixed roses and the back are smooth hydrangea. Each exit has a wrought iron arch, two with Japanese honeysuckle and one with white climbing roses. A white oak grove stands at the east end of the house, featuring a thatched and timbered dog house modeled after the main house. Facing south is a large expanse of lawn bordered by banks of rosebay rhododendron with two Chippendale benches. The secret garden is enclosed by yew and features two stone benches that flank a circular bed of ilex with a statue in the center.
The upper pond is shaded by a large tulip tree and mixed oaks. A low arch bridge next to the Catawba rhododendron crosses the stream between the upper pond and the koi pond. The koi pond is surrounded by large boulders found on the property, as well as statuary and meandering stone paths planted with rhododendron. A large Japanese maple stands by the koi pond. A stone bridge engraved with a quote by Andrew Jackson, crosses back towards the koi pond. Conn Lane, named after one of the designers, starts at the stone utility structure with a gothic-arched door built into the berm. The roof is topped with pachysandra and a metal swan. Boxwood and English ivy create the border. The gravel path leading from north to south has a stone wall on the west side and is flanked by bigleaf hydrangea, mixed ferns, and ilex. Through the yew hedge is a garden room with rosebay rhododendron, astilbe, English ivy, mixed ferns and hosta. Natural-locust post stairs lead up the berm next to a giant shagbark hickory. The second garden room has a semi-circular stone walled area planted with trailing myrtle, astilbe, mixed ferns, hosta, and Korean boxwood.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. Eustus Langdon Hopkins (former owner, 1927-unknown); Mr. And Mrs. Stanley Rumbough (former owners, 1949-1950s); Mrs. Herbert Wellington (former owner, 1969-1974); Mr. Robert Strawbridge III (former owner, 1974-1985); Charles A.

Biographical / Historical:
Baron von Stillfried was an Austrian noble who arrived in Japan in 1868. In 1871, von Stillfried opened a photo studio in Yokohama under the name, Messrs. Stillfried & Co. In 1877, in partnership with Hermann Anderson, von Stillfried bought Felice Beato's studio and negatives, and continued to take photographs of Japanese people. He eventually left Japan for Hong Kong in 1881.

FSA A1999.35 322
General:
Forms part of Rosin album number 1. Page 30.
Title taken from label affixed to bottom center of mount.
This album, with covers of lacquer and ivory, was produced by a shop which used photographs by Beato, Von Stillfried, Kimbei, and others, without including their descriptions or numbers. Each photograph is described by a label affixed below the print. The work is almost certainly by A. Farsari, who owned the stock of all of these photographs in the 1880s. Kimbei kept some stock he had purchased from Von Stillfried in his own shop. Confusion and uncertainty regarding attribution of 19th century Japanese photography is well-discussed in published material.
