Place:
Deep Hollow Farm (Millbrook, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Dutchess County -- Millbrook
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, narrative history, topographic map, landscape plan, lecture "Wildflowers in My Garden: A Neglected Element in Garden Design," by Renee du Pont Donaldson, and periodical copies.
General:
The 260+ acre property includes the formal garden, secondary entrance to the house, terrace, paths to naturalized swimming pool, and the natural red cedar pergola at the tennis court. These garden areas were designed by Renee du Pont Donaldson in 1938. It was a combination of formal and informal plantings with a feeling for the topography of the land and existing trees and native shrubs. After three subsequent owners, the main garden, except for the original design outlined by the stone retaining walls, has disappeared.
Persons and Organizations associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. William D. Hale (former owner, 1911); Mr. and Mrs. Donaldson (former owner, 1934-1974); Jack Crawford (Landscape Architect, 1938); Renee du Pont Donaldson (garden designer, 1938); Louis Kristofik (gardener, ?).
Original photographs are each in three sections to create one panoramic image. Several, however, do not continue the image with one of the end sections.
Related Materials:
Deep Hollow Farm related holdings consist of 1 folder (14 35 mm. slides)
