Company Farm (Pottstown, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery County -- Pottstown
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, copies of photographs, copy of Pennsylvania Historic Resource Survey form, copies of public sale announcements, 1843 property inventory, 1754 deed, and garden plan.
General:
The property, being primarily a farm, had a relatively simple garden behind the house except for more sophisticated landscaping by the former owners of the Tudor-style house. Historically, there has been a strong connection of the property to the old Schuylkill Canal. In the early 19th century, the farm was used to raise mules needed to pull the barges from upstate Pennsylvania to Philadelphia. The present owners wished to emphasize the natural landscape. A pond is fed from run-off from a spring. Rhododendrons are interspersed with grassy areas and stone walls. A trip to a Japanese garden, designed by Kobori Enshu, inspired the owners to recreate it using stones to represent cranes and a small central peninsula representing the island of eternal youth. A later trip to Thailand inspired the garden's Thai Spirit House. The garden has been used for Thai students to perform dances, for weddings, and as a gathering place for Easter sunrise services and garden tours.
Special appreciation for the owners' children's hard work is shown by placing bronze statues in special garden settings. "Celebration," by L'Deane Trueblood (1999), is dancing in a large oval garden. The bronze statue, "Wings," by Gary Price (1996), stands on a high rock depicting a young boy launching his model plane. "Child of Peace," by Edward Fenno Hoffman III. (1960), depicts a boy cuddling a dove. "Garden Chimes," by Val Bertoia (2000), represents the gardener's love for music.
Persons associated with the garden include: Thomas and Richard Penn (patent owners, 1754); James and John Ingles (former owners, 1754-1806); Christian and Daniel Beary (former owners, 1806-1836); Eli Harley (1836-1844); John Reifsnyder (former owner, 1844-1847); Schuylkill Navigation Company (former owner, 1847-1896); Reading Railroad (former owners, 1896-1914); Joseph Elwood Reitenbaugh (former owner, 1914-1928); Anthony N. Bullock (former owner, 1928-1934); G. Clymer Brooke (former owner, 1934-1945); Claude and Minnie Shelton (former owners, 1945-1970); and Robert Clevenger (former owner, 1970).

Druim Moir Formal Garden
General:
27 digital images, 1 35mm slide (photograph), and 2 folders.
See also the Eleanor Weller Reade Collection for another copy of PA474001.
The Druim Moir Formal Garden was built in 1921 in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Henry Howard Houston, a prominent Pennsylvania Railroad entrepreneur, constructed the Scottish baronial castle in 1886 on a 50-acre parcel on one of the highest points in the city. He named his home Drium Moir, which means "high ridge" in Gaelic. The castle was built with 54 rooms and a five-story tower. A dower home, Brinkwood, was also built on the property as a wedding present for Houston's second son, Samuel F. Houston. Both Druim Moir and Brinkwood were designed by the architectural firm G.W. and W.D. Hewitt, and were listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

In 1921, as a distraction from the tragedy of their son killed in action in World War I, Charlotte Houston commissioned a formal garden. It was designed by architect Robert Rodes McGoodwin, who planned a seven-level terrace axis, a bowling green, and a sunken garden below. Wrought iron gates connect each of the rooms, constructed by metalworker Samuel Yellin. The garden rooms were dug out of the slopes by returning World War I veterans.

In the 1990s, new boxwoods were planted as borders for the perennial beds, however the structure of the garden has not changed since 1921. Druim Moir is known for the architectural beauty of its walls made of local stone, terraces, and handcrafted ironworks. Many shrubs and trees from the original garden continue to thrive nearly a century after the garden's establishment. Currently, the formal garden is preserved by the Druim Moir Homeowners' Association in accordance with the original plan prepared by Robert Rodes McGoodwin. A team of part time gardeners, arborists, and community volunteers cultivate the gardens under the direction of three residents.

Persons associated with the garden include: Henry Howard Houston and Samuel F. Houston (former owners, 1886-1952); Edith Houston Brown and the Houston Foundation (former owners, 1953-1980); Druim Moir Corporation, Developer and Sales Agent (former owner, 1980); Druim Moir Homeowners' Association (current owner, 1981-), G.W. and W.D. Hewitt (architects, 1886) Robert Rodes McGoodwin (architect, 1921- 1922); Samuel Yellin (iron worker, 1921-1922), Charles Kraut (head gardener), Naomi Breman (garden manager, 2017-).

Scope and Contents:

General:
The foursquare house on this ¾-acre property was built circa 1908 by the U.S. Army corps of engineers to be used by one of two lockmasters, preferably with large families, employed to maintain busy locks 24/7 on the Allegheny River. The federal government provided some landscaping in the 1930's and 1940's, and there is photographic evidence of a vegetable garden. There were mature white pine, catalpa, river birch, ash and silver maple and stands of invasive Japanese knotweed when the current owners began developing gardens in 2001. The entrance garden behind a nine-foot tall wooden fence was built first, with an arched wooden bridge over a bubbling waterfall and fish pond with koi, shaded by two river birches, a dwarf Japanese maple, oakleaf hydrangea, azaleas, and an understory of Solomon's seal, Japanese painted fern, hellebores and hosta. The shabby chic garden is more formal with intersecting boxwood hedges edging beds of flowering shrubs, roses, bulbs and perennials. The focal point is a two-level cement fountain set in another koi pond with a nearby statue of St. Francis of Assisi. A collection of stone statues of Buddha and a hot tub, with shade perennials and a view of the Allegheny River comprise the Buddha bed. The dam wall garden features an arbor created from fallen branches, stone steps descending 20 feet with ground cover, ferns and daylilies planted on the hillside, a fire pit on the riverbank but no vegetation on the dredged river sand and gravel.
On the main level there is a swimming pool inside a pool house/greenhouse with a retractable roof. Its shady garden has ferns, liriope, spotted dead nettle, ornamental grasses, heuchera, hosta, Joe Pye weed, a meandering stream and another pond with koi and ducks. The pool house walk has a wisteria-covered pergola and birdhouses. The gathering garden has a meditation hut cantilevered over the riverbank with plantings of hydrangea, mountain laurel, hosta, hellebores, astilbe, bellflowers, Japanese anemone and blueberry bushes shaded by white pine. The sunny farm or potager is comprised of raised beds separated by gravel walkways planted with perennial flowers, herbs, vegetables and rhubarb from grandmother's garden. Additional outbuildings include a chicken house with chickens free to roam, a duck house and a shed with solar panels that provide electricity for these buildings.
Choderwood is located between a defunct short line railroad and the Allegheny River, an urban oasis in a formerly industrial location, and is a certified wildlife habitat. The owners have participated in garden tours and host events as well as lodgers on two riverboats.
