Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies (with photo illustrations) of book sections and articles about the gardens, and other information.
General:
Woodhaven was the estate of Robert Foster and Laura Baxter Maddox and at the time it was first developed, in the early 1900s, lay about six miles north of downtown Atlanta in what is now the Buckhead section of the city. Beginning with a 75-acre property where woods ended in a deep ravine, the owners (with Laura Maddox doing the design work) adapted the site to more favorable landscape conditions. The ravine was terraced to prevent erosion and became an expansive, terraced sunken garden, the first formal garden of any significance in Atlanta. Native trees were augmented with ornamental trees and shrubs, while the bowl of the ravine became a pool to hold the water that naturally drained there. The circular surrounding area was frequently used as a natural theater. In addition to this sunken garden there was also a "Pergola Garden." Roses, perennials, hedges, lawns, walkways, sculpture, and other features made this a garden of interest in all seasons. After World War II the property was subdivided, with the Maddox family retaining 25 acres. In the 1960s the State of Georgia purchased about 20 acres as the site for a new governor's mansion. The Maddox house was demolished, although the gardens and carriage house were retained (noted landscape architect Edward L. Daugherty designed the site immediately around the new governor's mansion). Significant enhancements to the gardens were made in the 1980s.
Images of the garden as it existed during the ownership of the Maddox family were used to create the slide copies in the Archives of American Gardens' collection, which apparently date to 1987.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert Foster and Laura Baxter Maddox (former owners and landscape designer, 1906-1965).

Scope and Contents:
17 35mm slides (photographs) and 1 file folder. Image date from 1922, 1925, 1926 and 1940.
General:
Georgia's climate and flora were similar enough to Tuscany to inspire this Italian Baroque style house and gardens on a 40-acre property, designed by J. Neel Reid in 1923. There was a boundary screen of cedars and cherry laurel along the road with a winding drive to the entrance court through pine underplanted with native azaleas. Additional plantings of oleaster, yucca and gardenias led to wisteria on a loggia, espaliered magnolias, and pots and tubs of pomegranates, orange trees, oleanders and geraniums. North of the house there were steps to a formal boxwood and clipped ivy parterre with a small pool in the center and a tiny frog pool to one side in a wild garden of azaleas, kalmias and native ferns growing above mixed violets. Beyond the parterre an oval stretch of lawn had another pool with a tall water jet, enclosed by a hedge of sheared arbor vitae bordered by a double allée of magnolias. On the other side of the house the courtyard overlooked the tennis court, orchard, terraced cutting garden, and the road to a farm and vineyard partly screened by pine, mimosa and bamboo. Additional Italian-style features included large terra cotta jars and stone pots of aloes and azaleas, climbing vines on the buff-colored high walls of the terrace, and two Baroque statues at the sides of the shallow steps.

Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Calhoun (former owners, 1923-1948); Mr. and Mrs. Roby Robinson (former owners, 1948-1961); Mr. and Mrs. Allison Thornwell (former owners, 1961- ); J. Neel Reid (architect and landscape designer, c. 1923-1925); Philip Trammell Shutze (terrace gardens designer, c. 1925).

Scope and Contents:
"The Tullie Smith House is located on the same grounds. See also the Tullie Smith House, Atlanta, Georgia."

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).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets.
General:
The Turner Lynch Garden is located on a 3.08 acre property in the historic district of Peachtree Heights Park. The architecture firm Carrère & Hastings planned the district's street layout, a curvilinear design that incorporates the natural terrain of the region. In keeping with this plan, a long winding driving driveway leads to the Mediterranean style house which is sited at the crest of a gently sloping hill. While preserving the bones of the original landscape, the Turner Lynch Garden features a series of garden rooms that have been developed by the present owner. These include a formal rose garden, a Japanese woodland garden, a conifer garden, and a children's playhouse garden. Original to the property, a perennial garden dates back to the early 1920's when it was termed a "round garden." The four quadrants of the garden, which mirror each other, have been enlarged to accommodate a larger planting area, and annual plants are added to provide color in late summer.
The front of the house features a large fescue lawn framed with border plantings offering the architectural features of the house as the focal point of that view. A terrace at the back of the house features a knot garden that overlooks a reflecting pool below, with a view of the perennial garden beyond. From the terrace and the perennial garden the sloping property continues down to a wooded area featuring rock walls and tile paths that wind through the trees and a recirculating stream and three ponds accented with small wooden bridges and stone benches.
Persons associated with the garden include: Harold O. Rogers (former owner, 1923-1927); J.W. (Wick) Goldsmith (former owner, 1927-1928); Clarence Haverty (former owner, 1928-1986); A. Emmett Barnes IV (former owner, 1986-1989); Pringle and Smith (architects, 1921); and T.C. Wesley (contractor/builder, 1922/1923).
