Annesdale (Memphis, Tennessee)

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This garden was designed by an unknown Italian landscape designer with an additional re-design executed during the 1920s and 1940s. The Italian-style antebellum home, once a country estate, is set on a hill in the heart of the city of Memphis. It was screened from urban traffic by a dense grove of magnolias, tulip poplars and oaks. The property was named 'Annesdale' by Colonel Robert Bogardus Snowden after his wife, Annie Overton Brinkley of Nashville in the mid to late 1800s. The original farm included vegetable and flower gardens tended by Itailian gardeners. Plantings included roses and peonies.
In the 1970s, Annesdale was comprised of eight acres. A two-story ornamental iron balcony overlooked formal flower beds outlined by curving pathways. On the west side of the porte-cocheĢ€re are two wrought iron gates opening on the boxwood allee leading to the circular pool and fountain.
In 2005, the garden still included elements of the original Italiante design. Portions of the garden were surrounded with brick walls and garden features included two ornamental pools and nineteenth century statuary.
The tower on the front of the house was used as a lookout during the Civil War. Like many other Southern mansions, Annesdale was used as a hospital during the Civil War.
Persons associated with the property include: Col. and Mrs. Robert Bogardus Snowden (former owner, mid to late 1800s), Mr. and Mrs. J. Bayard Snowden (former owner, dates unknown), Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H. Todd, Jr. (former owner, 1950s?-2010).

Boxwood (Knoxville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes work sheets, a photocopy of a paper on Knoxville gardens with information about Boxwood, and a copy of the University of Tennessee finding aid.
General:
This garden was designed between 1923 and 1930 by the Olmsted Brothers firm for Alfred Fanton Sanford, a prominent Knoxville businessman who in 1928 sold his newspaper, the Knoxville Journal and Tribune, in order to pursue a lifelong dream of developing an arboretum containing an example of every tree native to Tennessee. The arboretum encompassed 20 acres. Design elements included by the Olmsteds for Boxwood included formal gardens and water features. Detailed documentation, including contemporary photographs, planting lists, plans, and correspondence, may be found in the Olmsted Archives at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline, Massachusetts. The A. F. Sanford Arboretum Records at the University of Tennessee Special Collections Library, Knoxville, includes seven boxes of record books documenting the plants present in the arboretum between 1930 and 1941. After Sanford's death in 1946 the arboretum was subdivided, although most of the land is now occupied by Boxwood Park, named for Sanford's home.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects, 1923-1930) and Alfred Fanton Sanford (former owner, ca. 1920-1946).

Most of the images are copies of originals commissioned about 1935 by Mrs. Ross.

Lothrop Garden (Knoxville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, garden plans, and a narrative description.
General:
A palette of blues, yellows, whites, pinks, and lavenders invites one to stop, to study, to reflect, and to enjoy the beauty and serenity of a "seasoned" garden that has been developed and maintained over the last three and one-half decades by a horticulturist. The owner is a teacher, who has been the principal participant in designing, implementing, and nurturing beds of perennials, banks of flowering shrubs and ferns, and a meandering woodland garden. The perennial bed contains plants that create a variety of heights, tectures, color, and form. Many of the plants in this bed are made up of many gifts from family members and fellow gardeners.
A firm associated with the garden is Mountain View Nursery (helped with foundation plantings, 1965).

General:
Charles I. Barber, of Barber and McMurry, designed the house in 1926 for Mr. John J. Craig, III., one of the owners of Candoro Marble Company. Landscape architect Charles F. Lester was hired to mold the surrounding eighty acres to complement the strongly Italianate house. Lester laid out green terraces on a slope between the north front of the house and a man-made lake below and created a large formal garden to the west. Developers purchased the property in 1971, with the intent of demolishing the residence and constructing a subdivision. The house and several acres, however, were preserved with the remaining being developed into the Westlands and Westchase condominiums and Craigland subdivision. The current owners of the existing property have restored and renovated the gardens and remaining two acres of property, which combine formal and naturalistic elements. In 1998, a wall was added to define the north side of the formal garden, which features ponds and stone benches original to the property, concrete sculptures, boxwoods, and espaliered "Smoothee" apple trees. To the east of the house is a large lawn surrounded by woods of mature dogwoods, maples, tulip poplars, magnolias, hackberries, walnuts, oaks, and hemlocks. A cottage garden is kept behind the garage. The owners planted an herb garden in large clay pots just outside the kitchen door.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owners, 1926-1945); Mrs. John J. Craig, III. (former owner, 1945-1971); Mrs. and Mrs. Calvin Walter (former owners, 1971-1992); Charles F. Lester (landscape architect, 1926); Charles I. Barber (architect, 1926); Albert Milani (marble sculpture, 1926); Mary Spengler (garden designer, 1992-1998); Rosemary Verey (garden consultant, 1995); and Peter Thevenot (plant supplier, 1998).

Archival materials
Place:
GATOP (Knoxville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, narrative, sculpture list, chronology, and site plans.
General:
The garden was first created in 1941 by the Pease's, who named it GATOP (God's Answer To Our Prayer). The owner later added to the garden ca. 1973. GATOP is now an example of an urban property using native species. The garden design is dictated by a 20 acre forest, a deep gorge of limestone and marble outcroppings, and continuous walls of stacked stone,pathways, sculpture pieces, and seven ponds. A participant in the urban forest renewal and preservation program within the city, it will help to connect a greenway corridor from GATOP to Williams Creek, Ijams Nature Center, and the Knoxville Arboretum.
Persons associated with the garden include: Tennessee Producers Marble Co. (former owners, 1895-1934); B.L. and Lisian Pease, W. Fred Sterchi (former owners, 1934-1935); J.C. and Mattie Sterchi (former owners, 1935-1941); Lloyd and Virginia Pease (former owners, 1941-1971); Duane Grieve (architect, 1981); and Carl Willis (horticulturists, landscape architect, 1975-1995).
