After Farrand's death in 1959, the Garland's took care of the garden until they sold the property in ca. 1969. The front garden was framed with Reef Point fence and incorporated Asian and native plants. The main garden, at the back of the wing, contained elements of Farrand's herbaceous plant collection. This garden consists of rectangular beds with gravel paths between. The central panels are mostly heaths and heathers from Farrand's collection. On January 9, 2004, Garland Farm was purchased by the Beatrix Farrand Society. Their purpose is to repair the house and restore the gardens back to Farrand's design in order to serve as a center for research and activities.

This was the private garden of William T. Gotelli, a building contractor and collector of dwarf and slow-growing conifers. With design assistance from landscape architect John J. Jennings, Gotelli amassed about 1,500 specimens within a 15-year period from nurseries, estates, and botanical gardens in the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Thirty genera were represented by numerous varieties of fir, cedar, false cypress (Chamaecyparis), juniper, spruce, pine, Cryptomeria, yew, arborvitae, hemlock , and other genera. Considered to be one of the most extensive collections of its type, all of the plants, rocks, sculpture, and other features were donated by Gotelli to the United States National Arboretum in 1962 and were removed to Washington, D.C., where they are known as the Gotelli Dwarf and Slow-Growing Conifer Collection. A virtual tour of the collection as it presently exists may be found on the arboretum's website.

Fairview -- Brier Hill Garden

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Erie -- Fairview
Brier Hill Garden (Fairview, Pennsylvania)
Scope and Contents:
32 digital images (2007-2017) including 17 digital panoramic photographs, an original planting list, 1 appraisal portfolio including original photos, historic photograph reproductions (1915-1960), 1 video, 5 oversized plans and 4 file folders.
General:
Approximately 12 acres developed and owned by the McBrier family for over 100 years. The land was first developed with the construction of the summer house which was built in 1914 at the end of a private drive on a hill overlooking a natural ravine. The land features woodlands, specimen trees, rolling lawns, and a ravine with bog garden. From the house a stone stairway leads to a large concrete dam built in 1915 that allowed for the family to control the flow of the running stream and the natural spring. In 1927, after clearing chestnuts infected with blight, Mr. Frederick McBrier hired Arthur Westcott Cowell. Cowell was the landscape architect who established the Department of Landscape Architecture at Pennsylvania State College. Cowell designed the ravine with bog garden, cutting gardens, and trees around the summer home. After the death of Mrs. Grace Richardson McBrier her son (James McBrier) and his wife (Blossom McBrier, a member of the American Rhododendron Society) revitalized and created a year-round home on Brier Hill in 1972 from the summer home. A major change was the addition of a deck to look into and across the ravine. They also established the lower walkway and primrose path leading to the concrete dam. They have maintained the Cowell designed gardens and replaced trees as needed. They have also created new gardens of rhododendrons, azaleas, hybrids of the world, and all kinds of Cronus. Throughout the property of various gardens there are seating inlets that contain antique white wrought iron, black wrought iron, natural wood benches, and wicker sofa, table and chairs. These seating areas are intended to invite visitors to rest and appreciate the gardens. The property is still maintained by a team of gardeners under the instruction of Blossom McBrier who has hosted garden club visits and opens the garden up to the public each Memorial Day.

The property also features sizeable vegetable gardens, cutting gardens, and a native azalea bed. The trees around the house include Bay Magnolia, Native Florida Rutgers, Japanese Maple, Cronus, and a variety of evergreens. The original plantings in 1927 also included over 400 rhododendrons, 200 mountain laurels, and trees, many of which still exist in the natural ravine. Today, the ravine is filled with the original planting of bay maximums, mountain laurels, azaleas, and multiple varieties of native trees. Across the property there are over 100 tree species, hybrids and rhododendrons. Many of the specimen trees are over 100 years old. Also featured are extensive collections of rhododendrons of all types.

Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. Frederick B. McBrier and Mrs. Grace Richardson McBrier (former owner, -1944); Grace Richardson McBrier (former owner, 1944-1966); Mr. James R. McBrier and Mrs. Blossom P. McBrier (former owner, 1966-1997); Blossom P. McBrier (former owner, 1997-); Arthur Westcott Cowell (Landscape architect, 1927); Lester Freeland (Horticulturist, 1970-1974); Glenn Peckham (gardener, 1914-1966); Robert McDonald (gardener, 1972-); Thomas Eckerd (gardener, 1998-2008); David D'Nunzio (gardener, 2009-2015); Adam Kalivado (gardener, 2015-).

The lithograph from which this photographic image was made is also part of the Archives of American Gardens collection.

The lithograph was produced by C. Molte.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
Designed by William P.Hager in 1966, this garden was featured on the tours of the Garden Club of America 59th annual meeting. The description of the garden from the pamphlet from the meeting states that the garden is "not a garden in the true sense," rather it is "a walled area for outdoor living." The outdoor living area features a small swimming pool fed by the spill of a fountain pool at one end which features a sculpture of a kneeling girl by New Orleans artist Ricardo Alfreze. The house was designed in the French traditional "hotel particular" style by architect Edward Silverstein and Associates of New Orleans. The garden is accessed through French doors which leads onto a large stone terrace where steps descend to the pool level. Off the owner's bedroom is a small garden with a small fountain figure and pool against an arched wall niche shaded by a large dogwood. The entire garden is paved in crab orchard stone except for the plant beds. Plantings include thirteen different varieties of hollies, early and late blooming azaleas, dogwoods, camellias and photinias. Hollies are in specimen tree form and espalier treatments.
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. John Sneed Williams (former owner, 1970s?), William P. Hager (landscape architect, 1966),
