General:
The Savage Garden as it exists today is a large (1.7 acres), densely planted garden located in Fountain City, Tennessee, a suburb of north of Knoxville. The historic garden was established in 1917 by Arthur Savage, who emigrated from Leamington Spa, England to Knoxville in 1886. In 1895, Savage married Hortense Garrett and moved into a bungalow style house in Fountain City in July 1917. Soon after, Hortense planted a garden behind the house.

In 1920, Savage hired Charles Davis, a master stone mason and gardener to construct a sandstone perimeter wall. By 1921, two 18-foot stone water towers and a series of pools and ponds were constructed, to be joined later by streams connecting 3 additional ponds. By 1926, a sandstone Asian pagoda was built to house a 30-foot cistern and electric water pump. Pergolas and arbors led to the pagoda, followed soon after with a circular seating area, a stone tool shed, and a free standing sandstone arch overlooking the pagoda and pools. In the botanical garden, Savage collected a variety of plants, notably a Chinese pistache, a pond cypress, a fern-leaf beech, a Chinese parasol tree, and a Chinese fir. Savage's company produced machinery to cut stone, and this may explain why all of the garden's benches, steps, walls, water towers, outbuildings, and follies were made of stone.

In 1986, Bill Dohm and Patty Cooper purchased the property with the intention to restore and preserve the garden. Dohm ad Cooper restored the stone walls and borders, the Asian Pagoda, and other outbuildings. Architect Bill Barth used photos of original structures to redesign the arbors and entrance gate. Dan Duncan replicated the structures, which were fully installed by 1993. In 2018, gardeners at Savage Garden planted 12 pickup truck loads of trillium, Twin Sister daffodils, and 20,000 snowdrops. The garden rooms are connected by pathways lined by stone with each room layered with wildflowers, bulbs, and perennials, depending on the season.

Persons associated with the garden include: Arthur and Hortense Savage (former owners, 1917-1946); Hortense Savage (former owner, 1946-1953); Pearl Savage Laughtery (former owner, 1953-1986); Bill Dohm and Patty Cooper (owners, 1986-present); Charles Davis (Stonemason and gardener, 1920-1937); Bill Barth (Architect, 1990-1995); Dan Duncan (Master woodworker, 1990-1995); Eric Fortenberry (gardener and designer, 2007-present); Terumi Watson (gardener and designer, 2008-present).

For more information, see Smithsonian Folklife Festival records.
Introduction:
The 1987 Festival took place for two five-day weeks (June 24-28 and July 1-5) between Madison Drive and Jefferson Drive and between 10th Street and 14th Street, south of the National Museum of American History and the National Museum of Natural History (see site plan). Held on parkland among many of the nation's most treasured memorials and institutions, the Festival explored the city beyond Washington's federal buildings. Visitors learned of its diverse, vibrant and evolving musical traditions - a hometown to Americans of many cultures. In any culture language is a primary source of unity and pride. Through the 1987 Festival visitors had the opportunity to learn about the valued role of language in some of America's linguistic communities. Culture and language have played an important role in shaping the character of each state in the union. In this, Michigan's sesquicentennial celebration year, traditional craftspeople, musicians, cooks, woodworkers, boatmen, and others shared with Festival-goers the particular history and culture of their state.

The 1987 Program Book included schedules and participant lists for each program; the Program Book essays provided a larger context for the Festival presentations, without being limited to traditions actually presented at the 1987 Festival.

The Festival was co-presented by the Smithsonian Institution and National Park Service and organized by the Office of Folklife Programs.

Biographical / Historical:
Armstrong Manual Training School, built in 1902, was authorized by congress as a vocational high school for African American youth in Washington, DC. The school was named for Samuel C. Armstrong (1839-1893), a white commander of an African American Civil War regiment and founder of Hampton Institute, now University. Designed by local architect Waddy B. Wood, the Renaissance Revival building provided carpentry, machine, foundry, and blacksmith workshops. In addition, the school taught chemistry and physics. Dr. Wilson Bruce Evans, the father of performing artist Lillian Evans Tibbs, served as founding principal. Duke Ellington, William "Billy"Eckstein, and John Malachi are among a host of Armstrong graduates who became prominent in their profession. In 1996 the school was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in the District of Columbia.

Place:
Miles Garden (Weston, Connecticut)
United States of America -- Connecticut -- Fairfield County -- Weston
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a copy of an article about the garden with photographs by Molly Adams and a complete plant list, and other information.
General:
This Japanese-style garden was designed by landscape architect Ethelbert E. Furlong for artist Walter Miles and his wife, Jessie, to complement their home, which in turn had been designed by noted architect and woodworker George Nakashima. Because Walter Miles wanted to install and maintain the garden himself, with as little help as possible, he modified Furlong's plan to some degree, while retaining the spirit of the design. Dry stream beds, a pavilion, a bamboo-roofed gatehouse, and irregularly shaped stones were some of the many features of the garden. Although Asian plant material was used extensively, non-Japanese plants such as as Blue Atlas cedar and a flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) were also selected. After leaving this house in 1971, Walter Miles built a second Japanese-style house and garden in Washington, Connecticut, where he lived until 1983.
Persons associated with the property include Ethelbert E. Furlong (landscape architect, ca. 1960); George Nakashima (architect, ca. 1950); and Walter and Jessie Miles (former owners, 1950-1971).
