Archival materials
Place:
Vernon Court (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles and periodical and book illustrations about the garden (the Indoors and Out article, cited below, includes a garden plan).
General:
Complementing a mansion designed around 1898 by Carrère & Hastings for Anna Van Nest Gambrill (Mrs. Richard Gambrill, Sr.), this garden was the work of Wadley & Smythe. A large sunken garden with a central fountain was a replica of Anne Boleyn's garden at Hampton Court. A terrace ran the length of the house, while the formal garden was enclosed on the north and south sides by towering privet hedges. Gravel paths framed the sunken garden and also divided it into four sections. North and south of the house were smaller intimate gardens. Highlighting the south garden was a domed summer house and a small fountain, while standard and floribunda roses amidst box borders were features of the north garden. Beginning in 1956 with its sale by the Gambrill family, the property passed through several owners, and the gardens and grounds were largely neglected until the early 1970s. The mansion currently houses the National Museum of American Illustration, under whose aegis extensive restoration work on the gardens has been undertaken. Many of the slides are images of periodical and book illustrations. Other gardens associated with the Gambrill family in the Archives of American Gardens include Vernon Manor I (NJ107) and Vernon Manor II (NJ227).
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Anna Van Nest Gambrill (former owner, c. 1898-1927); Carrère & Hastings (architects, c. 1898); and Wadley & Smythe (landscape architects, c. 1898).

General:
River Gallery Sculpture Garden possesses a major contemporary sculpture collection in addition to exhibiting sculpture for sale. The garden includes a formal area in the design of a nautilus with a pea gravel-finished surface walking path. There is a patterned surface walkway in the natural area, which includes a meditation area and recycling mountain stream. The "River Fence" in the formal area captures in aluminum an outline of Maclellan Island in the left frame and the Chattanooga cityscape in the right frame. The gazebo entrance is entered through metal sculptural gates, each depicting the most recognizable features of each of the seven bridges located across the Tennessee River in the immediate Chattanooga area. The rising fountain in the center of the formal part of the garden is the center of the spiral created by the nautilus walkway.

Knoxville -- Rest and Be Thankful Garden

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Rest and Be Thankful Garden (Knoxville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Knox County -- Knoxville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, detailed information about the garden's plants, photocopies of articles about the garden, background details from and about the owners, and additional information.
General:
Since 1967, the owner/gardeners of this 6.7 acre site have been striving to turn what was once a thicket of scrub pines, blackberry bushes, and poison ivy into a garden reminiscent of Colonial Williamsburg. That they have succeeded has been judged by a University of Tennessee horticulturist as being nothing short of a miracle. Today there are five formal gardens, two of which are vegetable/herb gardens within brick walls with raised beds, one of them in three tiers. There are two boxwood gardens, a bowling green, and an arched brick bridge over a stream. A small, natural looking but manmade waterfall flows from a pond next to the bridge. A single bamboo plant has grown into a jungle with a darkened path curving through the center. The circular brick driveway is lined with thousands of daffodils, while more daffodils, daylilies, hostas, and four kinds of hellebores are planted along the garden's paths. A large berm with boulders overlooks the gazebo lawn and two ponds, with a willow and large shade trees forming the background. Yellowwood and Variegated Giant Dogwood are among the outstanding trees that have replaced the old scrub pines. The garden has garnered significant public attention and praise and remains a place of enjoyment for its owners, individuals, and groups.

General:
Under development since the late 1970s, this nearly two-acre garden site is a tranquil blend of plantings surrounding the owner's home. Building on Lester Collins's basic design, Oehme, van Sweden and Associates added an upper and lower pond connected by a small waterfall. Garden features include multi-level terraces, stone walls, broad stairs, intricate fences and gates, perennial borders, ornamental grasses, and raised cutting beds. There is a large swimming pool at the lower end of the property and a woodland frames it all. The garden's overall ambience benefits from its owner, a talented floral designer who offers classes from her home.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. K. Wagner (former owners, before 1976); Lester Collins (landscape architect, 1977); James van Sweden (landscape architect, 1986); Donald Lethbridge (architect, 1976); Ella Toulin (sculptor, 1985), and Oehme, van Sweden and Associates, Inc.

Place:
Aspen Farms Community Garden (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Philadelphia County -- Philadelphia
Scope and Contents:

Varying Form:
Aspen Farms Community Garden
General:
This 28,362 square-foot site dates to 1975 and was established under the sponsorship of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's community vegetable garden program (the forerunner of Philadelphia Green, created in 1978). The garden, located over the stream bed of Mill Creek, formerly held a row of residences on Aspen Street and a dry cleaning company, which were demolished in 1965. The initial garden size was 3,600 square feet. The society's program supplied turkey-wire fencing, soil, tools, seeds, and technical assistance to a group of 10 people. In each of the next two years, the garden doubled in size with Philadelphia Green assistance. By 1979, the garden filled the entire lot of more than 28,000 square feet. In 1980, the garden underwent its first renovation when Philadelphia Green sponsored the development of a central walkway with planting beds and benches. In 1983, the Penn State Cooperative Extension Service's Urban Gardening Program sponsored a wood frame greenhouse. The most significant improvement to the garden occurred in 1988-89 when it was the focus of a design project jointly sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, the West Philadelphia Partnership, and Philadelphia Green. During that time, the garden received a new chain link fence, several newly constructed raised beds with new plantings, and a gazebo.
Located in the Mill Creek neighborhood of West Philadelphia, a moderate income community, the garden is organized and managed by the Aspen Farms Community Garden Club, originally called "Our Club." This well-organized and efficiently run club has as its mission to "foster relationships, community pride, aesthetic value, and provide a social spot for the gardeners of the community." The club consists of approximately 40 members who are responsible for planning, developing, and maintaining the garden plots and common areas of the site. The gardeners range in age from 13 to 104, including many school children who participate in the garden as part of formal school programs. Each member pays an annual fee of $10 [as of 1996] and additional income is generated through fund-raising projects and donations. The club's annual budget is approximately $1,000. The money is used to purchase plants, supplies, and other materials for the garden. Except for occasional soil and wood chip deliveries from Philadelphia Green and technical assistance from the Penn State Cooperative Extension Service's Urban Gardening Program, there is no other ongoing significant support for the garden club. The club continues to maintain the garden well and it has become the central feature of the Mill Creek community. It consistently wins top awards in the City Gardens Contest and Harvest Show. It has also attracted national attention through network television coverage and an article in National Geographic. In 1997, Aspen Farms hosted tours in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Garden Club of America. In the spring of 2004, the Philadelphia Green crew built a bridge over the ponds connecting the site to the new butterfly garden to installed next year. The ultimate goal for this garden is to create an outdoor classroom for use by Sulzberger middle students, who have been involved with the garden for many years.
Persons and organizations associated with property include: Redevelopment Association of Philadelphia (former owners, 1950s-2004); and Neighborhood Garden Association (owner, 2004-present).

Meadowburn (Vernon, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New York -- Orange County -- Warwick
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets; landscape plans; copies of photographs; copy of biography of Helena Rutherfurd Ely(October 1951); compilation of notes from oral history by Albert Furman, Jr. (1998-2000); and copies of articles and programs.
Former Title:
Ely Gardens [Middletown Daily Times-Press, 7 November 1925]
General:
Meadowburn was the summer home of Helena Rutherfurd Ely, a prominent gardening author who wrote three books at the beginning of the 20th century. Her first book, A Woman's Hardy Garden, is reflected throughout the five acres of gardens she designed at Meadowburn. She has been called the American Gertrude Jekyll, as they both advocated a casually abundant, hardy, no-fuss gardening style. Towards the end of her career as a designer/gardner, Mrs. Ely was more and more drawn to the use of evergreens.
Vernon, New Jersey, Warwick, New York's "sister town" across the state line, is also shown as Meadowburn's location. Meadowburn straddles the border between the two states. According to Helena Ely Rutherfurd Meade's biography of her mother written in 1951, "Meadowburn Farm is mainly in New Jersey, but there is still a good bit of it in the State of New York." Though it is listed in a registration form (1992) for the National Register of Historic Places as being located in Vernon Township, New Jersey, this designation only covered the "significant features of the house and gardens at Meadowburn Farm; five acres, more or less."
Persons and organizations associated with this garden include: Louisa and Mary Rutherfurd (former owners, 1853-1860); John and Charlotte Rutherfurd (former owners, 1860-1881); Helena Rutherfurd Ely (former owner, 1881-1920); Alfred Ely, Jr. (former owner); Charles H. Coster (former owner, 1930-1977); Albert Furman, Sr. (gardener, 1893-1948); Albert Furman, Jr. (gardener (1948-2004); and Kurt Seligman (frog sculpture and fountain pool).

General:
This garden, named for the family that has owned it since the late 1950s, had an earlier incarnation as the Wineman Garden, which was at its peak from the 1920s through the 1940s. The earlier garden was designed by landscape architect Paul Mueller around 1919 and featured pergolas, arbors, a waterlily pool, abundant roses, and spring bulbs. A large pond was eventually filled in while other elements were lost. A large arbor, walkway, and rectangular beds remain in the current garden, which was designed by landscape architect Phillip Watson in 1997. The contemporary garden features mature trees including Ginkgo biloba and Quercus virginiana (live oak). A boxwood parterre surrounds a fountain and small pool. Another garden feature surviving from the Wineman era is a wisteria-covered pergola. A shade garden, cutting garden, vegetable garden, and lawn are complemented by a variety of trees, shrubs, and perennials.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Paul L. Mueller (landscape architect, 1919); Phillip Watson (landscape architect, 1997); Phillip Watson Designs, Inc. (landscape architects, 1997); Mr. and Mrs. Otto Wineman (former owners, 1918-1956); and Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Cunningham, Jr. (former owners, 1958-1986).

Historical Note:
The roots of the Society for Industrial Archeology can be traced back to a seminar on industrial archeology held at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C, on April 11, 1967. Kenneth Hudson, the prominent British archeologist, was the featured speaker and main attraction. More than 30 people attended this day-long seminar, including state and federal government officials involved in historic preservation; museum professionals from the Smithsonian, other technology museums, and a handful of historic sites and parks; and representatives of several engineering societies. The sessions concentrated on what was being done in Great Britain and on the Continent to promote the study of industrial archeology, and what needed to be done in the United States. This seminar planted the seeds for the eventual founding of the SIA, seeds which germinated for more than four years before bearing fruit.

The SIA was officially born at the conference held at the Smithsonian Institution on October 16, 1971. Paul E. Rivard, then director of the Old Slater Mill Museum, proposed a meeting to develop means to improve the exchange of ideas and information among people working in the "new" field of industrial archeology. Ted Sande, Philadelphia architect and doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, and Robert M. Vogel, curator of mechanical and civil engineering, Smithsonian Institution, organized the meeting. Nearly 50 people involved in the field attended this all-day conference, including architectural historians, historical archeologists, historians of technology, museologists, and preservationists. They came from museums, state and federal agencies, universities, and historical societies (see the appendix for a list of attendees). The same interesting collection of individuals, institutions, and interests remain well-represented in the SIA to this day.
