The Field Club (Sarasota, Florida)
United States of America -- Florida -- Sarasota County -- Sarasota
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and historical information.
General:
The subtropical gardens were designed to provide splashes of color with low maintenance and minimal water usage. The Mediterranean revival style house was built circa 1925-27 on 16 acres. It was a private home that sold in 1957 at a below market price provided that the purchasers formed a private club and did not tear down the David Adler mansion or subdivide the grounds. The original main entrance was a long straight driveway under an allée of calamondin orange trees intended to perfume the air in winter when the owners were in residence. Another private entrance at the end of a winding drive, shaded by royal palms and West Indies mahogany trees, was turned into the club's main entrance. Historic Live Oak trees, Hong Kong orchid, jacaranda, royal Poinciana, mango, slash pine and various palms are found around the mansion and throughout the property. Four flower beds around the central fountain in the courtyard contain foxtail palms, bromeliads and various succulents. Wax begonias are featured in containers and combined with juniper in a large bed that surrounds an antique urn. Two enormous staghorn ferns hang on a bottlebrush tree. Black mangrove hedges, pruned with permission, line the banks of the lagoon with an island of unclipped mangroves and flowering trees.
Although there have been additions to the mansion, including dining rooms and a commercial kitchen, and the interior has been completely redesigned, The Field Club was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 5, 1986.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Field (former owners, 1924-1957); David Adler (architect, circa 1925); and Irene Page (landscape designer, 2003- ).

Scope and Contents:
Folders include worksheets, brochures, and copies of articles.
General:
The Brandon tract was patented by James Martin, a son of Sir Richard Martin, of England, who in 1616 was granted ten shares of land by the Virginia Company. The tract was named after the town of Brandon in Suffolk, England. In 1909, the landscape consisted of informal flower beds and tall trees--many of which were previously imported from the West Indies. A box hedge was at a height of four feet near the house on the north side. Box also bordered the garden walks, interlined with chains of cowslips and daffodils. Broad, grassy walks were located between lilac and althea hedges. By 1934, the gardens showed some rectangular and square divisions with paths bordered by old box. In the 1960s, Brandon Farm consisted of 4,500 acres, of which 1,500 was under cultivation. Twelve families lived on the property during this time, with 15 men employed.
Persons associated with the property include: John Martin (owner of land grant, 1616); John Sadler, Richard Quiney, and William Barber (former owners, 1637); Benjamin Harrison, II. (former owner, 1712); Nathaniel Harrison (former owner, 1720); Robert Williams Daniel (former owner, 1926);Thomas Jefferson (designer of additions and center for house, ca. 1765); and Arthur Shurcliff (landscape architect).
