The folder includes worksheets, site plans, plant lists, and photocopies of articles.
General:
Medway Plantation comprises 6700 acres of longleaf and loblolly pine, live oaks, tupelo, swampland and lakes as well as the oldest masonry house in South Carolina. An ornamental garden with irregularly-shaped beds and serpentine paths, known as Miss Lou's garden, was redesigned in the 1930s by Ellen Biddle Shipman. The earlier garden was described as a bird sanctuary and nursery growing anise and Chinese bay trees, azaleas, fringe trees, roses, flowering almond, lilacs, spireas, myrtle, and yellow Jessamine, with wisteria growing up into deciduous trees. The surplus from Miss Lou's garden was planted in long borders alongside three shallow brick terraces, and along paths that led to a schoolhouse on the property. The current drive to the house has double borders of live oak trees hung with Spanish moss that were first planted after the Civil War. In the 1930s architect Ides van der Gracht designed a greenhouse with stepped gables, echoing that feature from the house, and added serpentine brick walls surrounding a garden of flowers and vegetables, on the site of the historic kitchen garden. Prior to the Civil War rice was cultivated at Medway Plantation, followed by cotton and the current crop, timber.
Medway Plantation was first organized as a land grant to Johan (or Jan) van Aerssen in the last quarter of the 17th century. He started the original house which during its long history was burned and rebuilt, nearly abandoned and used only as a hunting lodge, and finally renovated. The house has unusual stepped gables in the Dutch style, reflecting the van Aerssen heritage. After van Aerssen's death circa 1867 and the remarriage of his widow, Sabina de Vignon to Thomas Smith in 1689, the property came into the prominent South Carolina Smith family.
In the early days land parcels routinely were acquired and sold and the dimensions of Medway Plantation changed frequently, finally ending up at 6700 acres under the ownership of Sidney J. and Gertrude S. Legendre in the 20th century, who had purchased and annexed neighboring plantations. Before her death in 2000 Gertrude Legendre put the property in a non-profit foundation with a conservation easement to preserve the pine forests, wetlands, and wildlife. It is recognized as a breeding site for endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers, bald eagles, wood ducks and wintering ring-necked ducks, and provides habitat for deer, turkey and quail.
Persons associated with the garden include Johan van Aerssen (former owner and builder of original house, 1686-circa 1688); Sabina de Vignon, (former owner, 1688-1689); Thomas Smith and members of the Smith family (former owners, 1689-1701); Edward Hyrne (former owner, 1701-1711); Peter Gaillard Stoney and family (former owners, 1833-1930); Sidney J. and Gertrude Sanford Legendre (former owners, 1930-1993; Ides van Waterschoot van der Gracht (architect, 1930s); Ellen Biddle Shipman (landscape architect, 1930s).

Grahampton (Greenwich, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Greenwich
Scope and Contents:
Grahampton related holdings consist of 2 folders, 6 photoprints and 32 digital images (1920-2017). The folders includes worksheets and copies of articles.
General:
Grahampton was purchased in 1916 and finished in 1917, the brick estate served as the retirement home of Pittsburgh's Henry William (Harry) Croft and his wife, Augusta Graham Croft, for whom Grahampton is named. The Crofts purchased five farms to create the property. The main house was completed in 1917 and sat on 287 acres of land. James L. Greenleaf designed the original garden, adjacent to the main house. The garden was originally the work of James Greenleaf, who worked closely with Mrs. Croft. Pastures, orchards, and marshy grounds were transformed into tended walks, stonework, and flowers. Greenleaf and Mrs. Croft created pools; boxwood-lined paths; flower beds of delphiniums, foxgloves, and irises; and steps leading up to a statue of Diana with her leaping dog. The Crofts later brought in Ellen Biddle Shipman to design another garden for the estate. Augusta Croft was a member of the Greenwich Garden Club. Her gardens were on tour at The Garden Club of America 1927 Annual Meeting in Rye, N.Y., and are described in the GCA Archives. Grahampton has since lost many of its designed spaces following its subdivisions over the years. The original house currently sits on a little more than five acres of land and the gardens surrounding it are primarily foundation plantings of Buxus, trees, flowering shrubs, and groundcovers. The 1920s oval driveway has been replaced with this rectangular portion of the driveway, lined with Amelanchier Canadensis is used as a parking area for guests. Pink rhododendron and Cornus kousa are visible just off the drive. There is a redesigned gate and set of stairs that leads to the lower backyard. The backyard features a large, rectangular pool near the back entrance to the house and a lawn that ends with a hedge of arborvitae to screen from the neighbor's property. Predominant plants on the property are Pachysandra, Rhododendron, Azalea, Peony, Boxwood, Cornus, Hemlock, Cedar, Pine and Japanese maple.
Persons and firms associated with the garden and property include: Henry and Augusta Croft (former owners); Johnson and Abbot (architect, 1916); William H. Nye (contractor, 1916); James L. Greenleaf (Landscape architect, 1916-); Ellen Biddle Shipman (Landscape architects, 1917-)

General:
The mission of the Rye Nature Center is to promote conservation and environmental education within an urban forest and preserve. The 47 acre site, once a private estate, is comprised of three distinct gardens: a 300 square foot educational garden inside a deer fence, a rain garden, and a native plant garden, an educational center with two classrooms in the former carriage house of the estate, woodlands with natural water features and an outcropping of volcanic gneiss, more than two miles of hiking trails, a seasonal butterfly house, and two children's playgrounds and a sunflower maze. Classes are given for pre-school and school age children, summer campers, and adults on water conservation and storm water management, plant lifecycles including decomposition, and gardening techniques that are beneficial to the environment and wildlife. The teaching methods are hands on, encouraging participants to sample organically grown produce while planting or hand-picking insects that will be fed to the bearded dragons housed in the educational center. Rain water is collected and channeled to the rain garden's ferns, Joe Pye weed, milkweed, blue flag iris, cardinal flower and shrubs. A roof garden with self-watering containers also demonstrates how rain water can be captured and used.
Food grown in the gardens is used for cooking demonstrations and leftover food from the campers is turned into compost for the vegetable garden. Logs from the woodlands, straw and wood chips are inoculated with several varieties of mushroom spawn, also demonstrating how decomposition aids food production. Tomatoes and squash are planted in straw bales that were used for autumn decorations and an old wash basin is repurposed as a bog garden containing Venus flytraps, pitcher plants, cranberries and sphagnum moss. The native plant garden, established by the Little Garden Club of Rye in 1988, includes an edible forest garden shaded by sweet gum trees growing native perennials, trees, shrubs and ground covers that provide food for wildlife and humans. Also a bee-friendly garden is being planned by the nature center staff.
The Friends of Rye Nature Center was first founded as the Rye Conservation Society in 1964 and has been managed by the non-profit Friends since 2006. It has been certified as an urban wildlife sanctuary by the National Institute for Urban Wildlife.
Persons associated with the garden include: Parsons family (former owners 1902-1942); City of Rye (owner, 1959- ); Nature's Cradle (rain garden design and installation, 2011); Jacob Nurick (urban farming installation, 2013); Taro Letaka (director of conservation, 2013- ); Annette Hein (horticulturist, 2014- ).
