Portland -- Old Germantown Gardens

Collection Creator:

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Old Germantown Gardens (Portland, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Multnomah County -- Portland
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and garden plan.
General:
Established in 1988 on five acres, the owners wished to create a garden on a grander scale than their previous small gardens. The space needed to have a water supply, a south-facing slope, and to be set within a forest environment. The owners designed a pond for the focal point for the house above. The lawns and borders lead the eye to the pond. These elements were the determining factors in where the plant collections, trees, and shrubs would work.
Related Materials:
Old Germantown Gardens related holdings consist of 1 folder (14 35 mm. slides)

Provenance:
Waterworks is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.

Collection is open for research. Some items may be restricted due to fragile condition.
