Birchwood (Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Sheboygan County -- Elkhart Lake
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, historical pictures and information regarding previous owners, historical timeline of property, planting lists, planting plans, and landscape design.
General:
The estate began in 1890. Villa Gottfried was originally the winter house of brewer Matheus Gottfried. A greenhouse and palm house were constructed in 1894. After Gottfried's death, the house changed hands. In the 1930's, the owners re-named the property "Birchwood." Destruction of buildings--the Villa in 1946--and property division has occurred over time. A racetrack, previously on the property, is now covered by streets and houses. Original stone walls and stone fences still exist. The garden has a series of terraces leading from the back of the house down to the lake. The estate has a woodland walk, along with many other features.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Matheus Gottfried (former owner, 1888); Laun Brothers (former owner, 1908); Fred Vogel (former owner, 1916); Joseph Wolff (former owner, 1919); and The Wreath Company (landscaper and designer, 1980's - present).

Windwood Garden (Lake Geneva, Wisconsin)
United States of America -- Wisconsin -- Walworth County -- Lake Geneva
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, historical pictures and information regarding previous owners, historical timeline of property, planting lists, planting plans, and landscape design.
General:
Located on approximately 100 acres, Windwood Garden was originally part of a 90-plus acre property that dates back to 1879 when R.T. Crane purchased it. During the early 1900s, the property was operated as the Crane's family compound with fruit orchards, vegetable gardens, a bakery laundry building and four greenhouses. The property was subdivided in 1933 to Maxwell House and A. F. Gartz. The western side of the divided property was purchased in 1948 by the current owner from A. F. Gartz and included the original house, vegetable garden, orchard and large expanses of lawn with a few flowers or shrubs. When the property was purchase, the property was very basic and showed signs of neglect. Brian Bader, arborist consultant, and Scott Byron, landscape architect, assisted the owners in creating a plan to conserve and transform the property into a small arboretum and then to further develop vistas from many different angles across the entire property.
The property includes woodlands and meadows populated with native spring wildflowers and large beds of daffodils. The wooded areas have many varieties of oaks, beech, maple, hemlock, walnut, hickory, lindens and butternut trees. A white okay tree is marked with a plaque by a University of Wisconsin arborist as the largeest white oka in Southeast Wisconsin. Decorative sculptures, benches, bridges, fountains, ponds and trails with plantings of trees, shrubs, perennials and wild grasses are also featured on the property.
In a 2014 garden tour handout for the Garden Club of America, the following areas were described as distinct areas of the home and garden: the manor House, the Country House, the Green Carriage House, the Caretaker's House, teh Stable, the Woodland Cottage, the White Oak Savannah, the Vegetable Garden, the Cooler House, the Pond, the Boat Deck, West Pier and East Pier.
Persons associated with the property include: R. T. Crane (former owner, 1879-1933); A. F. Gartz (former owner, 1933-1948); The Griffith family (owner, 1948- ), Scott Byron (landscape architect, 1985-present); Brian Bader (arborist consultant, University of Wisconsin, Madison Arboretum, 1996-1998).

Scope and Contents:
27 digital images (2010-2017) and 1 file folder.
General:
The property is 325 acres consisting of pasture, hayfields, a conservation area, and homestead with the Snake River flowing through it. The home was built in 1986 with the surrounding gardens and greenhouse in the original plan. The location dictated the "wagon wheel" design of the kitchen garden located inside a semi-circle between the driveway and greenhouse. The kitchen garden features a wooden fence, radiating stone paths from a central circular bed, raised vegetable beds, a small production greenhouse, and flower beds. Despite the short season and harsh Wyoming winters at an elevation of 6300 ft., the garden has proven to be a successful. The garden is designed to be viewed from the deck off the kitchen. Stone steps lead down to the greenhouse and garden. The greenhouse is used in the winter to house heirloom geraniums, ivy, a jade plant, a few orchids from Florida, and to start seedlings for the vegetable garden in the spring. The vegetables are planted in raised beds to discourage moles and voles and cloches are added as needed for frost and to deter chipmunks.
The contents of the garden has concentrated on flowers and vegetables that do well in Wyoming. The root crops and lettuces are very successful in this climate. Annuals are grown from seed collected in the fall as well as some new varieties each year. However, the owners also grow peonies and lilacs from relatives in Vermont as well as daffodils, Sweet Williams, and some special geraniums. The Hens and Chicks which grow between the stepping stones came from the owners' woodland property in New York. Also many of the spring bulbs were gifts from friends and relations which have continuously been divided and shared with others.
Persons associated with the garden include: Riverview Ranch and Livestock Co. (former owner, 1917); Don Albrecht (former owner); Robert and Marna MacLean (garden designers, 1986- ); Vince Lee (architect, 1986); Les Weber (log home builder).

Historical Note:
In June of 1936, delegates from the Garden Club of America made a ten-day trip to Paris, France and its environs on the invitation of the President of the Societe des Amateurs des Jardins. During the first five days the group visited Voisin, an estate belonging to the Comte and Comtesse de Fels, modern gardens in Paris, Vaux le Vicomte, the greenhouses of the City of Paris, Museum of the Duc d'Orleans, Courances, and the roof garden of the Compagnie de Distribution d'Electricite. The final five days included trips to the Castle of Marais, the home of French inventor, engineer, and scientist Georges Claude at Rueil, the Vilmorin Etablissement, Sceaux, the Palace of Versailles, Gros-Bois, and the Cemetery at Picpus. Highlights of the trip included a visit to Chateau de Grosbois, and Albert Kahn's Japanese garden. They also learned about the innovation and potential of artificial heating and lighting during their visit to Compagnie de Distribution d'Electricite.

The Whim (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles, historic photographs, and landscape architect's plans, transcripts of interviews, and other information.
General:
The Whim is a seaside New England garden comprised of flower and shrub borders and a sunken quadrangle planted along the foundation walls of demolished greenhouses, with follies, sculptures, steps to the ocean planted with lavender, and swaths of lawn. The walls and privet hedges trimmed to calibrated heights protect the flowers from the salt spray and winds off the ocean while not blocking the view. The 3.4 acre property has other garden areas surrounding the lawns, including a border of bright blue Nikko hydrangeas that are fed aluminum sulfate, a crabapple border, a shed draped with a climbing rose, a secret garden with kousa dogwood and viburnum, and a shady garden walk alongside the house. Garden areas are named for the animal and other sculptures that are featured, including a heron by Walter Matia in the heron quadrangle, eagles at the head of the eagle borders, and rabbits copied from the ones that were at Chateau-sur-Mer, a Newport mansion.
This property was once part of a larger property that had gardens designed by Beatrix Farrand for her aunt, the author Edith Wharton. The Evangeline climbing rose that covers the tool shed was transplanted from the Wharton garden many years ago, and renamed the Miss Newport rose by the owner. Friends and associates have contributed design ideas and artifacts to this garden: the mushroom shaped garden furniture once belonged to a friend, the gazebo was purchased and installed by one of the gardeners, and the steps were fabricated from discarded Newport curbing.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Thayer, (landscape architect, 1968-present); T. J. Brown and Timothy Brown, (gardeners, 1952-present); Anne Baptista (property manager, 1989-present); and Jerica Ford (gardener, 2007-present).
