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."

Gerbing Gardens (Fernandina Beach, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Nassau County -- Fernandina Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of images, a chronology and other information.
General:
In 1937 Gustav George Gerbing transformed about 7 acres of family property along the Amelia River into a public garden, Gerbing's Azalea Gardens, with plans for massive plantings of azaleas and camellias for viewing and for sale. The entire 15 acre holding became Gerbing Gardens, with groves of native trees including cedars, magnolias, bay, pines, live oaks and water oaks draped with Spanish moss, and wisteria trees. The advertisements for the garden claimed plantings of 100,00 azaleas, an 800-foot long camellia japonica "Sarah Frost" windbreak, a natural terraced amphitheater of camellias and trees, rose gardens, a 4-acre sunken garden planted in roses, azaleas, camellias and bulbs , picnic grounds and children's playgrounds, all behind a 1,200-foot concrete sea wall. Concrete curbing was used to define garden beds, chain link fence was covered with Spanish moss and other vines, and broad walkways of sawdust were known as sawdust trails.
The garden remained public for about 20 years and was used for events such as the Festival of Flowers, but was not commercially successful. Gerbing and his business partner Ralph May continued to breed and sell the popular cultivars Mrs. G.G. Gerbing azalea indica and Jean May camellia sasanqua.
The current owners removed vines and undergrowth from the original 7-acre Azalea Gardens uncovering mature azaleas and camellias. Skeletal traces of concrete curbing, garden beds, parking areas and the extensive irrigation system also have been uncovered. The Gerbing greenhouse was remodeled and is a private building and the sunken garden and rose garden have been developed for home sites.
Persons associated with the property include Gustav Gerbing (8/11/1854-9/7/1930) (former owner, circa 1898-1930); Gustav George Gerbing (3/1/1900-1/25/1984) (former owner, 1930-1944); Ralph May (former owner 1944-1971); Amelia Island Company, Sea Pines Plantation (former owner 1971-???);Thomas J. and Sara M. Edwards (trustees 12/1/1993-6/8/2006).

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Aullwood Garden (Dayton, Ohio)
United States of America -- Ohio -- Montgomery County -- Dayton
Scope and Contents:
Materials relating to the public gardens of the Five Rivers Metro Park of Montgomery, Ohio. The folder includes a slide list, a description of the slides, brochures, excerpts from publications featuring the gardens, and a description and worksheet completed by GCA researcher, Annabelle Cummings.
General:
"Aullwood is a wooded garden with plants blooming from late February until December. Tens of thousands of mertensia cover the hillsides in April. They are accompanied with a profusion of blue-eyed Mary's. Hepaticas, drifts of trillium, Dutchmen's britches, shooting stars, and violets are throughout the woods."
"Throughout the years, the Aulls interlaced native spring flowering plants with celandine poppies, thousands of yellow and white daffodils, early spring aconites, adonis, hellebores, hostas and hyacinths. Aullwood Garden has diverse colors and textures of border foliage; summer-long ground covers take over from bulbs that flower and die; creeping rock plants claim sunny spaces; hostas' glossy foliage and later lavender flowers nod in deep shade. "
Special spaces are designated for a perennial garden, a rose garden, a lilac garden, and hydrangeas. The informal natural charm of the wooded landscape is never lost as the seasons change. A carpet of pansies throughout April and May becomes a rose garden in June. As summer settles in, the front lawn's border of perennials becomes a show place of color, texture, and pattern. In early September the colchicum bursts into drifts along the creek bordering the Sycamore lawn. A few weeks after that, the vibrant colors of autumn transform the woods. The Aulls were determined to keep indistinct boundaries between garden and woods. A natural look with a variety of flowers never loses harmony with the wooded background.
Persons associated with the property include: Marie and John Aull, (former owners).

General:
The Boston Public Garden was established in 1837 and encompasses about 24 acres in the heart of the city. Along with the Boston Common it forms the northern end of the Emerald Necklace, Frederick Law Olmsted's grand design for a string of parks running from downtown Boston to Franklin Park. The park developed informally until 1859, when a plan by George F. Meacham was finally selected to provide a more formal design. City engineer James Slade and forester John Galvin made modifications to the plan and laid out the paths and plantings. A highlight of the design is the pond or lagoon, home to the iconic Swan Boats, which began operating in 1877. Parterres, other flower beds and planting areas, statues, and numerous specimen trees are featured landscape elements. The Public Garden was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
Persons associated with the garden include George F. Meacham (landscape architect, 1859); James Slade (civil engineer, ca. 1860); and John Galvin (forester, ca. 1860).
