Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, copies of garden designs with planting plans, black and white photographs of the garden, black and white and color photocopies of images of the garden and Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, photocopies of articles about the house and garden, an unpublished 1990 paper by Lisa Hartjen entitled "The Gardens of 84 Prospect Street," notes on the garden by Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, a photocopy of Marjorie Sewell Cautley's 1937 consultant report, and correspondence and other information relating to the garden and Mary Elizabeth Sharpe.
General:
Situated on an irregular two-thirds acre lot, this garden's development began in 1929 under the supervision of its owner, Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, and continued over a period of 55 years. It is now in full maturity. Following Mrs. Sharpe's death in 1985, the property passed to Brown University, where it is now the home of the French Studies and Hispanic Studies departments. It was renamed Rochambeau House for Jean de Vimeu, Comte de Rochambeau, MareĢchal de France and commandant of French forces encamped at Providence during the American Revolution. Although some features have changed and trees have been replaced, the design concept still remains one of a French-style garden composed of plants chosen for year-round green interest. Features include a formal, boxwood-edged lawn, paved teraces, stone-paved courts, stone steps and ornaments, paths of diamond pavers, espaliers on house walls, and spring flowering trees surrounding a handsome house. The long, narrow sequence of the west garden descending from formal to naturalized areas and woodland is a highlight.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Mary Elizabeth Sharpe (former owner and landscape designer, 1929-1985); Henry Dexter Sharpe (former owner, 1929-?); Arthur Rice (architect, 1929); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect, 1934); Marjorie Sewell Cautley (landscape architect, 1937); Ralph E.

General:
"This garden was designed and built by Henry Sloan in 1901. It was originally a formal garden with reflective pools and statuary. It is only moderately maintained today. It was built in the Satulle Mountain National Register area and has a view of the mountains."
"The Cheeononda Gardens are a relic of the 1901 gardens designed and built by Henry Sloan, a New Orleans cotton broker. While it was once a formal garden replendent with reflective pools and statuary it is maintained today in a practical manner. Only the walkways and native stone walls remain to provide a footprint of the original garden but the Italian style house remains the crown of the garden."
"Flowing westward there are seven tiers of lawn following the contours of the hillside. While you see only one or two levels at a time, they lead you down to the lowest level where a creek's rippling can be heard. The reflective pools have been filled and are now maintained as flower beds or lawns."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Worrell Sloan (former owner/designer/builder from 1901 to 1979); Gatha B. Symmes (photographer).

Date:

Summary:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 3,100 photographic images of private and public gardens throughout the United States, as well as some from foreign countries, dating from 1899 to 1963. Many of these images, generated for Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), were used to illustrate trade catalogs published by the firm as well as journal and newspaper articles. The collection also contains color records that were used as reference aids during the printing process, plant patents, and various publications of the McFarland Company.
Scope and Contents note:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 2,700 black and white mounted photographs, 448 glass lantern slides, and 41 glass plate negatives of gardens throughout the United States dating from 1899 to 1963. A small number of images show gardens in Austria, Canada, England, Mexico, Scotland and Wales. Many of the images, which were generated and used by the J. Horace McFarland Company to illustrate trade catalogs and journal and newspaper articles, indicate the publication(s) in which they appeared. A series of portraits of rosarians, many of them featured in Modern Roses 6, rounds out the image collection. The McFarland Collection also includes color records, plants patents, and miscellaneous publications. Color records are plant 'portraits' that were painted by McFarland Company staff artists in watercolor. They were referenced by the printing department in order to render illustrations of plants in colors as close to the originals as possible. The plant patents are patents for plants issued by the United States Patent Office. They include the plant name, source, filing and patent dates, patent number, and growth characteristics. Most are accompanied by a colored image of the plant identified in the patent. The miscellaneous publications are various pamphlets and booklets published by the J. Horace McFarland Company.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 5 series:

1) Garden images (including mounted photographs, glass plate negatives, and glass lantern slides)

2) Portraits of Rosarians

3) Color Records

4) Plant Patents

5) Miscellaneous Publications
Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. J. Horace McFarland (1859-1948) was an influential civic leader, author, publisher, horticulturist, and authority on roses. His printing company, Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), was based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It published many of the seed and nursery trade catalogs in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century and was one of the first to apply color processes to commercial print applications. J. Horace McFarland Company staffers photographed thousands of different gardens and plant specimens throughout the United States. These images were used to illustrate numerous nursery and seed catalogs, journals and books. Among its many services, the firm sold various themed lectures illustrated by sets of hand-colored glass lantern slides.

McFarland wrote over 200 articles in popular journals as well as a dozen books on roses and gardening. He served as the first president of the American Civic Association from 1904-1924 and led several local and national campaigns to protect communities and scenic areas from urban blight and overdevelopment including the city of Harrisburg and Niagara Falls. McFarland, who served as the president of the American Rose Society (1930-1932) and helped establish a standardized rose identification and registration method, used the gardens on his own 2.5 acre property in Harrisburg, "Breeze Hill," to test hundreds of varieties of roses and plant cultivars. "Breeze Hill" was used as the backdrop for many photographs taken by McFarland's firm.
