Wright Garden, formerly known as.
General note:
Located on 1.7 acres, this historic property with its Greek Revival style house was built for John and Harriet Ryder in 1842-1845. The Deering family, local farmers added a barn and several outbuildings. In 1919, Richardson Wright, founder and editor of 'House and Garden' magazine began to chronicle the house and garden. In Wright's time, the property included 7 acres. Wright wrote extensively about the garden which was comprised at that time of an orchard, arbor with concord grapes, specimen magnolias, elms and tree lilacs, rock gardens as well as a large peony and iris garden. Among other plantings included roses, astilbe, clematis, columbine, delphinium, aster, poppies, marigolds, salvia, hyacinth, narcissus and tulips for color.
The gardens were revitalized by the current owner who renovated the hardscape and restored some of the older gardens. A small gardener's cottage with a bank of daylilies is located at the entrance of the property including the original hitching post. Also at the front of the property is a garden designed by the owner in 2005 which is planted with hollies, sedum, lamb's ears, black-eyed susan, lavender, nepeta, siberian iris, perovskia, oregano, chives, artemesia and hydrangea 'Pee Gee.' To the right of the driveway is a a hedge of boxwood.
The rear garden includes a star magnolia, one of the largest specimens in Connecticut, a shade garden planted with sweet woodruff, ajuga, myosotis forget-me-nots, goat's beard, hosta, astilbe, geranium, lady's mantle, primroses, lamium, and narcissus. A long back of Euonymus flank the stone retaining wall. There is a large blue stone patio planted with creeping thyme at the back of the house added in 2003. The patio is bordered on one side by sweeps of miscanthus, butterfly bush, sedum, caryopteris and echinacea. The other side of the patio is a rock wall garden with English ivy and clematis paniculata that cascades over the walls. A stand of bamboo dates to the time of Richardson Wright who brought it back from China and hardened it in his greenhouse for five years before planting. It was not invasive until recently with the warmer climate.
Other garden features include a stone stairway dating from Wright's ownership, a swimming pool, radiating brick walkways, a walled garden, a pool side gazebo, a cedar greenhouse and pergola with climbing clematis paniculata and morning glory.
Persons associated with the garden include John and Harriet Ryder (former owner, 1842-1845); Richardson and Agnes Wright (former owner, 1919-1950); Allison Slaughter (landscape architect, 2013); "The Swede" (gardener, 1919-1950).

Biographical / Historical:
Anna Walinska (1906-1997) was a New York artist, teacher and gallery director who traveled widely and is most well known for her paintings related to the subject of the Holocaust.

Anna Walinska was born in London, England in 1906 to labor organization leader Ossip Walinsky and poet Rosa Newman Walinska. She had two siblings, Emily and Louis. The family immigrated to New York City in 1914, and Anna Walinska began studying at the Art Students League in 1918. In 1926, she travelled to Paris and studied art at the Academie de Grande Chaumier with Andre L'Hote. France was her primary residence until 1930.

In 1935, Walinska and artist Margaret Lefranc co-founded the Guild Art Gallery at West 57th Street in New York and gave Arshile Gorky his first solo exhibition in the city. The gallery closed its doors in 1937. In 1939, Walinska was the Assistant Creative Director of the Contemporary Art Pavilion at the New York World's Fair. During this time, Walinska also pursued her own art and exhibited work in numerous group shows.

From 1954 to 1955, Walinska traveled around the world, visiting the capitals and major cities of many countries in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Places she went included Japan, Burma (now known as Myanmar), Pakistan, Greece, Italy, France and Spain. During her four month stay in Burma, she painted a portrait of Prime Minister U Nu and she later became a highly respected portrait artist who painted numerous illustrious subjects such as First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, artists Louise Nevelson and Mark Rothko, and many others.

In 1957, Walinska became the artist-in-residence at the Riverside Museum where she also taught and exhibited with other artists. That same year, she had her first retrospective at the Jewish Museum in New York City.

Walinska exhibited widely and often. Holocaust: Paintings and Drawings, 1953-1978, which opened at the Museum of Religious Art at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, is probably the most well-known of her exhibitions and it traveled across the country to several other sites such as the War Memorial Building in Baltimore and Mercy College of Detroit. Works from this exhibition were acquired by multiple museums to become part of their permanent collections.

Walinkska died on December 19, 1997 at the age of 91 in New York City. In 1999, there was a retrospective of her work titled Echoes of the Holocaust: Paintings, Drawings, and Collage, 1940-1989 held at Clark University's Center for Holocaust Studies. The Onisaburo Gallery at New York's Interfaith Center also held a solo exhibition titled Portraits of Faith (2000). Her art is part of the collections at the Denver Art Museum, National Portrait Gallery, National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Rose Art Museum, and other museums.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a site plan, an abbreviated plant list, and additional descriptive information about the garden.
General:
This expansive, three-acre garden lies on the west shore of Lake Washington. The lawn stretches east from the house to the water. It is bordered by deep flower beds anchored by broadleaf evergreen and deciduous shrubs, flowering trees, and towering conifers. On the north side a separate vine-covered garage with living quarters above is finished with the same pale pink stucco as the main house. A butterfly garden and vegetable and fruit orchard lead to the water. A lushly planted path defines the south side of the property, opening out into a flower and shrub border that ends at the lake. A bamboo grove is placed here for privacy. A basalt fountain just outside the front door on the west side echoes the serenity felt throughout the property. The land slopes upward to the street above and is dominated by a large American hornbeam tree, spring bulbs, and camouflaged tennis courts.
Persons associated with the garden include: M. Griffiths (former owner, 1928-1946); William Jensen (former owner, 1946-1966); Furman and Susan B. Moseley (former owners, 1966-2000); Terry Reckard (landscape designer, late 1960s); Terry Welch (landscape designer, late 1960s); Russell Link (landscape designer, late 1980s); Ken Philip (landscape designer, late 1980s); Tim Prendergast (landscape designer, late 1980s); Arthur Lee Jacobson (arborist, 1989); Mary Robson (consultant, 1991); Mike Kane (gardener, 1990-2000); Cass Turnbull (consultant, 1999); and Paula Ames (gardener, 2000-).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Rabbit Run (Charlottesville, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Albemarle -- Charlottesville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and copies of articles.
General:
When purchased in 2004 this nine-acre property had a single-story main house, an indoor pool, changing rooms, six-car garage, apartment unit and two acres of invasive bamboo, kudzu, poison ivy and akebia. The house was transformed with the addition of wings, two more stories, and a classical pediment; all the other buildings were demolished. Two hundred feet of classically styled formal gardens were installed with new outbuildings. A stone wall with two flights of stairs at the entrance to the garden also acts as a retaining wall. A garden of concentric circles replaced the swimming pool, with a round reflecting pool and bubbler fountain enclosed in limestone coping at the center, surrounded by a ring of turf, encircled by a pea gravel walkway and then a ring of boxwood. A straight pea gravel path bordered by lawn and boxwood hedges planted in a key pattern leads to another lawn enclosed by a 10-foot tall circus of hornbeam. At one end of this lawn there is a circle of boxwood around a stand of nicotiana with an urn planted with lavender at the center. The one-room dining pavilion folly at the other end of the lawn has two water tanks with bubblers. Perennials and bulbs were planted along the perimeters and in the spaces formed by boxwood designs at the front of the house.
The woodland gardens were planted with native ferns, bleeding heart, more than 50,000 Spanish bluebells (Hyacinthoides-hispanica 'Excelsior') and 40,000 scilla-siberica, interplanted to extend the blooming season. Additional outbuildings include a hexagonal garden shed that is a privy and a chicken house for 12 hens next to raised vegetable garden beds. The hens tend these beds after the growing season, consuming plant stalks, weed seeds, grubs and insects and leaving behind 1,000 pounds of organic fertilizer for the next year.
Persons associated with the garden include Brooke Spencer (landscape designer, 2004- ); Madison Spencer (architect, 2004- ).
