Summary:
This collection contains over 37,000 35mm slides, 3,000 glass lantern slides and garden files that may include descriptive information, photocopied articles (from journals, newspapers, or books), planting lists, correspondence, brochures, landscape plans and drawings. Garden files were compiled by Garden Club of America (GCA) members for most of the gardens included in the collection. Some gardens have been photographed over the course of several decades; others only have images from a single point in time. In addition to images of American gardens, there are glass lantern slides of the New York Flower Show (1941-1951) and trips that GCA members took to other countries, including Mexico (1937), Italy, Spain, Japan (1935), France (1936), England (1929), and Scotland.

A number of the slides are copies of historic images from outside repositories including horticultural and historical societies or from horticultural books and publications. The GCA made a concerted effort in the mid-1980s to acquire these images in order to increase its documentation of American garden history. Because of copyright considerations, use of these particular images may be restricted.
Biographical/Historical note:
The Garden Club of America was established in 1913 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when the Garden Club of Philadelphia and eleven other garden clubs met to create a national garden club. Its purpose is to foster the knowledge and love of gardening and to restore and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and gardening and conservation efforts. The GCA was incorporated in Delaware in 1923, with its headquarters established in New York City. Today, local clubs are organized under twelve regional zones. The GCA continues its tradition of hosting flower shows and publishing material related to gardening in the United States.

The GCA's glass lantern slides were used by The GCA for presentations and lectures about notable gardens throughout the United States dating back to colonial times. An effort was made in the late 1980s, in preparation of the 75th anniversary of the Garden Club of America's founding, to collect the disbursed slides. These slides were to eventually form the Slide Library of Notable American Parks and Gardens. The informational value of this collection is extensive since a number of images of the more than 4,500 gardens represented show garden designs that have changed over time or no longer exist. While the majority of images document a range of designed upper and upper-middle class gardens throughout the U.S., the scope of the collection is expanding as volunteers photograph and document contemporary gardens including community and vernacular gardens.

The gardens illustrate the design work of dozens of landscape architects including Marian Coffin, Beatrix Farrand, Lawrence Halprin, Hare & Hare, Umberto Innocenti, Gertrude Jekyll, Jens Jensen, Warren Manning, the Olmsted Brothers, Charles Platt, Ellen Biddle Shipman, and Fletcher Steele. Because of their proximity to the gardens, works of notable architects and sculptors may also be featured in the images.

General:
"Once the private estate of the Leslie Cheek family, of the Maxwell House Coffee forturne, Cheekwood is a stunning example of an elegant lifestyle. The three-story neo-Georgian mansion features architectural treasures from some of the great houses of Europe, selected by the Cheeks and their archictect, Bryant Fleming."
"Outstanding ornaments include towering mahogany doors, an Adam mantel of lapis lazuli, a magnificent staircase, brilliant chandeliers, and trompe l'oeil paintings to panel the walls. Today, the 55-acre Cheek Estate is a lasting tribute to one of the wealthiest eras in American history. Its stately mansion, built in 1929 with Tennessee limestone quarried on the property, is surrounded by breathtaking grounds designed by the Cheeks' landscape architect. The original gardens feature marble sculptures, water gardens, bubbling streams and grand vistas."
"Guests continue to marvel at the historical Bryant Fleming landscape. Surrounding his design are 11 principal botanical garden areas - the award winning Howe Wildflower Garden, an Herb Study Garden, the Wills Perennial Garden, the Carell Dogwood Trail and a traditional Japanese Garden. Botanic Hall features horticultural exhibits, flower shows, and the popular Trees of Christmas celebration every December. There is no better place to experience the season of Middle Tennessee."

Place:
Gibson Garden (Dallas, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Dallas
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet; site plans; six books of garden diary information and magazine and newspaper publication copies; and dvd.
General:
The purpose of this garden was to create an oasis of serene beauty, incorporating four outdoor rooms that offer hospitality and peace. The "Cottage Garden" at the front of the house includes a walk through the woods. In spring, layers of white "cloud nine" dogwood make a display with tulips, azaleas and wild mountain laurel. This garden also shows bright colors in summer and autumn. The second room, called the "Natural Springs Garden" reveals a Japanese-style garden with koi ponds and a waterfall. A Japanese teahouse serves as the focal point of the space. The "Oak Lawn Garden," the third room, consists of memorabilia, such as a blue glass bottle tree, stone carved angels, and a Portuguese roundel, from the owner's former home in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas. "The Back Yard" garden receives the most sun of all the outdoor rooms. Five foot azalea borders hide the compost area. Most of the 900 square feet of The Back Yard garden is grassed on two levels with a symmetrically spreading native pecan tree holding a high hung double porch swing.
People associated with this property include: Ferne and Arthur Koch (former owners, early 1960s-1971); and Rosa Finsley (landscape designer, 1971-present).

Place:
Hidden Glen Farms (Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Abington Township -- Meadowbrook
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, a copy of the garden plan, and three photos of the original Charles H. Gale installation from ca. 1983 (two of the same view). The garden is noted for its incorporation of colonial (eighteenth-century) design elements in a contemporary setting.
General:
"This garden was designed to enhance an eighteenth-century landscape and house setting. Landscape architect Charles H. Gale, Sr., was inspired by the architectural and horticultural research done at Colonial Williamsburg. He created a half acre of colonial gardens terraced to separate the formal flower and herb garden from the vegetable and fruit garden. The upper tier is in geometric subdivisions using English boxwood to edge and enclose spring bulbs, annuals, biennials, and perennials. Included are lilies, aquilegia, digitalis, delphinium, coreopsis, gallardia, phlox, astilbe, stokesia, Shasta daisies, yarrow, candytuft, alyssum, veronica, comfrey, and medicinal as well as cooking, and sweet-smelling herbs, the latter lining one side of the garden fence.
In each of the four geometric shapes is a five-foot, classical lead statue made in England. . . . The center circle has an eighteenth-century sundial. Fieldstone retaining walls, which contain the hill, and a sitting niche and bench with herbs underfoot utilize eighteenth-century ideas of garden construction. The vegetable and fruit garden, four stone steps down, is bordered on two sides by espaliered dwarf apple trees and grape vines. The small hill on the side of the steps is covered with lilies and strawberries. In one corner the fences join a garden tool house, which has a cedar shingled roof to match the family house and pool house roofs. Williamsburg clay birdhouses hang from one side of this house. The sheep pasture is adjacent to the garden. Fields and lower orchard go behind the garden. The tennis court,pool, woods and creek follow the lawns to the right."
Persons associated with the property include: Fred and Betty Conger (former owners, 1937-1963); Frederick W. G. Peck (landscape designer, 1967); Charles H.Gale (landscape architect, 1982); G. Edwin Brumbaugh (architect, 1937, 1966, 1969); Owen B. Schmidt & Sons (landscape architects, 1968); and John Milner (architect, 1981 and 1989).

General:
Like its neighbor, Hidden Glen Farms (PA348), Hidden Glen features design work by landscape designer Charles Gale. Although a basic garden was in place at the time of Gale's 1983 design, he incorporated the vegetable garden into the overall site plan, while adding a side garden and improving planting around the foundation of the house. Folk art ornaments and sculptures of birds and animals accented the plant material. The garden is noted for its incorporation of colonial (eighteenth-century) design elements in a contemporary setting.
Persons associated with the property include: Charles Gale (landscape designer, 1982); G. Edwin Brumbaugh (architect, 1937, 1966, 1969); Owen B. Schmidt & Sons (landscape architects, 1968); and John Milner (architect, 1981 and 1989).

The recent owners concentrated on growing flowering shrubs, perennials and annuals including New Dawn and Madam Alfred Carriere climbing roses, tree peonies, clematis, climbing and bush hydrangea, Oriental poppies, delphinium, acanthus, hollyhocks, columbines, and foxgloves. Flower arrangements filled the house and were entered into competition at the Philadelphia Flower Show. The design of the garden included flowering borders along axial gravel paths that led between the barn and the house with large swaths of lawn. Borders with roses, clematis and honeysuckle growing up trellises were planted on either side of the eight-foot high stucco walls that enclose the garden. Three arched entries into the old barn are echoed in an antique arch over a doorway in the walls, and in an enormous mirror mounted on the house. The formal courtyard near the house includes a restored octagonal garden bed with a fountain in the center. The stone fireplace from the original kitchen outbuilding is nearby.
Flowers in darker shades of maroon, brown and black were featured in the garden to provide contrast and definition to the spaces. Antique stone benches and wrought iron pieces were featured. A sculpture created from a hoe, rakes, a shovel, watering can, bucket, scythe and other tools mounted on the side of the barn commemorates all the work that went into this garden, and the ones that preceded it.
The area was settled in 1700s by Swiss German farmers and the original farmhouse and barn were built circa 1750. In 1850 Richard Wistar bought the property and named it Andorra Farm. He planted many trees and intended to build a mansion on his estate but died in 1863. In 1882 the property was purchased for further development by Henry Howard Houston and a tree farm was established, later owned and run by the nurseryman William Warner Harper. Although much of the surrounded acreage was sold and developed for housing the Houston family retained ownership of part of the original property. A granddaughter of Henry Houston, Eleanor Houston Smith and her husband Lawrence Smith, donated 100 acres in the 1970s to Fairmount Park. It is now the Wissahickon Environmental Center, and its visitors' center is in a nurseryman's cottage that was built around a sycamore tree although that tree is no longer standing.
Persons associated with the garden include Richard Wistar (former owner, 1850-1863); Henry Howard Houston and family (former owners, beginning in 1882); William Warner Harper (nurseryman and former owner of Andorra Tree Farm, 1920-1934); Lukens family (former owners, beginning in 1929); George and Audrey Nichols (former owners, 1976-2008); Frederick Peck (landscape designer, 1950's).

Philadelphia -- Glenwood Green Acres

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Glenwood Green Acres (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Philadelphia County -- Philadelphia
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, narrative description of the garden and its history, and an abbreviated garden plan.
General:
This 140,000 square-foot community garden site is located at the northern edge of the Susquehanna Greene Countrie Towne, a low-income community in north central Philadelphia. Initiated in 1983 with assistance from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Philadelphia Green program, the garden has been developed by the neighborhood on the former site of a warehouse complex destroyed by fire. By the third season in 1986 between 80 and 90 vegetable plots were flourishing. Two primary coordinators, both retired men, have handled the work in the common area, with the support of several other volunteers. They set up the wire fence, paths, raised beds, sheds, and watering system. The boards used for the raised beds and bricks for the pathways were recycled from a number of buildings being demolished in the area. Philadelphia Green provided fencing, a watering system, gravel, soil, woodchips, a paved driveway, trellis, a patio, plants, and benches. Although the garden was initially focused on vegetables, in 1990 plans were implemented for the East Hill, filled with trees, shrubs, and perennial flowers, set among boulders for dramatic effect. A pergola was erected as the entrance to the hillside garden, and additional plants were donated from exhibits and the Philadelphia Flower Show. In 1992, the commissioner of the Department of Licenses and Inspections entered into an agreement with the gardeners under which he put a caboose from his personal train collection along the back of the garden in exchange for replacement of fencing along two sides of the garden.
The group is well-organized, with elected officers and written by-laws. The gardeners are mostly in their 60s and 70s, while a few younger ones are in their 30s and 40s. Many of the gardeners are former residents of the neighborhood who travel back to Glenwood to work a garden plot each year. The community at large is supportive of the garden, which has won many prizes in the City Gardens Contest. The gate is never locked and visitors are often treated to the harvest and favorite recipes. The gardeners are renowned for their huge feasts in the summer when everyone is welcomed. The gardeners of Glenwood Green Acres have hosted Philadelphia Green workshops on many occasions. A special intergenerational project was conducted there in 1990 introducing youngsters to the heritage of southern agriculture. Demonstration plots of tobacco, cotton, and peanuts are still grown there.

Bartlett Garden (Stamford, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Stamford
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a written description of the garden, site plans, garden areas plans, a features plan, a plant list, additional photos detailing features in the garden, and other information.
General:
Located in Stamford, Connecticut, this four-acre property consists of land that has been in the Bartlett family since it was purchased along with a large tract of land by Dr. Francis Bartlett in the 1920's. Planted on one side of the house is a Bartlett chestnut tree, named as such by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1934 for Dr. Bartlett's efforts in creating a disease resistant chestnut tree. Some of the land once owned by the family now comprises the Bartlett Arboretum and Gardens.
The current owners purchased the property in 1983 and began to clear the heavily wooded property in 1987. A terrace made of stone from around the property was installed next to the house, and by 1992 a large lawn area was established in the back of the property. The Liberty tree on the southeast side was planted in 1991 from seeds the owner collected during a visit to the 100th anniversary celebration of the Statue of Liberty. The seeds were propagated at the Bartlett Tree Laboratories in Charlotte, North Carolina and distributed to all fifty states. Forty trees were given to the city of Paris in recognition of their gift of the statue to the United States.
During this time a dwarf conifer and heather collection were planted to the southwest of the main garden, and in 1995 the one-hundred-foot perennial borders were created. Tom Erikson of Pine Meadows Gardens in Southbury, Connecticut was hired to give the garden design a sense of structure. The two pergolas were built, and the garden house installed. The garden house was originally a Bartlett Tree Company display at the 1996 New England Flower Show, for which the company received a gold medal. It was dismantled and rebuilt in the garden. Large bricks columns, a brick terrace, and a wooden pergola were constructed in front of it. The perennial border is mirrored by a rose garden backed by a yew hedge, and the second pergola separates the upper and lower gardens. Two sixteenth-century millstones, originating in Spanish Florida, were sunk into the walkways covered by the pergolas.
In 2000 the owners began extensive renovations to the house. They enlisted the services of James Doyle of James Doyle Associates in Greenwich and Diane Bilgore of DAB Designs, Inc. in Ridgefield. Together they added the "Lilac Walk" to the garden, inspired by the owners' many visits to Hidcote Manor in England. Also on the property are a gazebo, a shade garden, a fountain, and a sundial garden. The entire property is enclosed by a woodland area, and a stream and stone wall on the southeastern edge.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Bartlett, (former owners, 1959-1982); Tom Ericson, (garden designer, 1996-2001); James Doyle, (garden designer, 2004-present); Diane Bilgore (garden designer, 2005-present)
