Scope and Contents:

The folder includes a work sheet, garden plans, photo copies of articles, nursery invoices, correspondence, and booklet on Craig family and Candoro Marble Company.
General:
Charles I. Barber, of Barber and McMurry, designed the house in 1926 for Mr. John J. Craig, III., one of the owners of Candoro Marble Company. Landscape architect Charles F. Lester was hired to mold the surrounding eighty acres to complement the strongly Italianate house. Lester laid out green terraces on a slope between the north front of the house and a man-made lake below and created a large formal garden to the west. Developers purchased the property in 1971, with the intent of demolishing the residence and constructing a subdivision. The house and several acres, however, were preserved with the remaining being developed into the Westlands and Westchase condominiums and Craigland subdivision. The current owners of the existing property have restored and renovated the gardens and remaining two acres of property, which combine formal and naturalistic elements. In 1998, a wall was added to define the north side of the formal garden, which features ponds and stone benches original to the property, concrete sculptures, boxwoods, and espaliered "Smoothee" apple trees. To the east of the house is a large lawn surrounded by woods of mature dogwoods, maples, tulip poplars, magnolias, hackberries, walnuts, oaks, and hemlocks. A cottage garden is kept behind the garage. The owners planted an herb garden in large clay pots just outside the kitchen door.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owners, 1926-1945); Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owner, 1945-1971); Mrs. and Mrs. Calvin Walter (former owners, 1971-1992); Charles F. Lester (landscape architect, 1926); Charles I. Barber (architect, 1926); Albert Milani (marble sculpture, 1926); Mary Spengler (garden designer, 1992-1998); Rosemary Verey (garden consultant, 1995); and Peter Thevenot (plant supplier, 1998).

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).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet with additional information about individuals associated with the garden, site plans, a copy of Donald Culross Peattie's booklet about the site, and copies of brochures and newspaper articles.
General:
Pearson's Falls is a 267-acre tract of land that the Tryon Garden Club of Tryon, NC, rescued from development in 1931. The falls were discovered by Charles William Pearson, a young engineer searching for a route for the Southern Railway in 1876. He purchased the land and it remained in the Pearson family until it was bought by the Tryon Garden Club. It is maintained today by a caretaker and volunteers from the club. Within the tract a wild flower garden and preserve are maintained. It is located in an unusual climatic area in the Blue Ridge Mountains called the "Isothermal Belt," where the winters are lighter and the summers longer, providing unusual growth possibilities. Located on Colt Creek just before it joins the Pacolet River, the garden preserve has over 200 species of wild flowers growing in the granite rocks and loamy soil along the creek. The garden walk follows the creek up to the 90-foot falls. There are blooms except in deepest snow. The property, which is open to the public for a small fee, is truly one of the gems of preservation of a natural garden and provides significant opportunities for study and wild flower identification.
Persons and organizations associated with the site include: Charles William Pearson (former owner, 1876-1903); Giles Pearson (former owner, 1903-1931); Donald Culross Peattie (naturalist and author); Oliver M. Freeman (botanist); and the Tryon Garden Club (owners and gardeners, 1931 to date).

Collection Creator:

Type:

Place:
Peg Atkinson's Garden (Avon, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Hartford County -- Avon
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, features map, and supplemental booklet of garden photographs.
General:
Located on three acres in Avon, Connecticut, the Peg Atkinson's Garden was originally part of a 300-plus acre property dating back to the 1800s. The house was built in 1931, possibly by architect Robert Schutz. Ravines create natural borders to the north and south of the property. A large meadow lies to the west. When Marguerite (Peg) and Tracy Atkinson made the property their home in 1977, Peg was inspired by the region's natural beauty and long growing season. Over the next 35 years, she worked to add garden elements to complement the New England landscape and enhance property vistas.
The property includes woodlands with mature pines and sugar maples. Peg Atkinson planted annuals and the London Planetree in the meadow. Striking trees and shrubs were emphasized in the garden design. Ornamentals such as Kousa dogwood, Eastern redbud, Japanese cherry tree and Mountain Cloud plum provide color year-round. Shrubs and perennials include hellebores, roses, Japanese barberry hydrangea, forsythia, peonies, German iris, Purple Cloud bushes, Rose of Sharon and Carolina silverbells. Curved brick walkways and stepping stone paths lead through the gardens and past eye-catching ornaments such as a "Victorian lady" sculpture, antique urn, bird feeders, stone gargoyles and iron benches.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Tracy & Marguerite Atkinson (former owners, 1977-2012); and David Hernandez (gardener, 1990s-2000?).
