Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, garden plan, vegetable garden diary (1943); copies of photographs, and copy of section in Herb Garden Design.
General:
Little Sutton, approximately 80 acres, was built in 1941 as a summer home. A garden plot, large enough to feed the family, was planted north of the house soon after it was built. The south terrace and porch has an outdoor fireplace and is planted with a yellow sedum This is bordered with low field stone walls and edged with roses and blue flowering bulbs. The owners added a square herb garden on the east side of the house near the kitchen door in 1942. In 1956, the main garden (now called the Terraced Garden) drawings were finalized and planted as well as the addition of a swimming pool to the south of the house. The bog garden and "bog pool," added in 1958, is shielded by Mugho pines, hemlock and junipers. Three years later, a more formal herb garden, two lathe houses, a fountain, two terraces edged in red brick rick rack fashion, and an entrance garden were added. The terrace near the house takes full advantage of the view of Mount Everett to the south and west.
Persons associated with the property include:Harding and Seaver (house architects, 1941); Marconica (landscape architects, 1941-?); Edmund G. Wilco (landscape architect, 1952); Sermini and Sons (stone masons); Roy Hare, Jonathan H. Rose (architects, 1963-1997); Santogostino (artist of large garden mosaic)

General:
Located on less than an acre, Walnut Street garden's most intriguing aspect is its survival as a vestige of the spacious semi-suburban district that was envisioned by the early "mansion house" developers of Beacon Hill. Erected in 1811 as a freestanding structure, it was soon built in with neighboring dwelling rowhouses after a decade-long recession, but its rear garden remains. It is one of the few spaces on Beacon Hill that has, perhaps, always been a garden.
A large open area shows up on the maps of the period, but there is no specific information about the garden for more than 100 years. In 1929 the house became the property of a well-to-do couple, Mr. and Mrs. Edward A. Taft. Mrs. Taft soon joined the Beacon Hill Garden Club, and we begin to have some written descriptions from this period. The well-known landscape architect Arthur A. Shurcliff of Colonial Williamsburg is mentioned as doing some work in the rear courtyard, and possibly the overall garden design. In the earliest photograph of the garden, dating from the late 1950's, the major design is in place.
The house remained in the Taft family until, in 1976, it was divided into two separate condominium units. Since that time the ownership of the garden has been shared. One half retaining the larger, open lawn and surrounding borders, the other, was given the charming enclosed courtyard and southern more formal part of the garden upstairs. Two years ago both garden areas were redesigned by Marc Mazzarelli Associates of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Persons associated with the garden include: Arthur A. Shurcliff (ca. 1930, landscape designer), Uriah Cotting (former owner, 1811-1814), Nathaniel P. Russell (former owner, 1814-1826), B.P. Homer (former owner, 1826-1856), James Davis (former owner, 1865-?), Mrs. H.P. Cushing and Miss Florence Cushing (former owners, 1891-1928) and Marc Mazzarelli Associates (landscape architects, 2007).

General:
Named after a slave who planted a flower garden on this rock ledge long before the town formerly known as Prides Crossing became popular for vacation homes for Bostonians, this property with its shingle style house was built in the 1880's with large windows facing the ocean view. However, the first owner did not install a garden. The second owner built a 3,400 square foot formal garden away from the house, walled with native stone and hidden from view on the four acre property. Comprised of a rectangle and a circle, the geometrically organized space was on two levels connected by stairs. In the 20th century the lower circular garden was shaded by a hemlock grove and featured a central pond with Henri Crenier's boy and turtle fountain sculpture. A flower border with anemones, foxgloves, lupines, gas plants, bugbane, iris and heliotrope was planted between the rough stone walls and patterned path of Majorcan pebbles that was installed, circa 1920. The rectangular upper garden had a wall fountain and tea house at one end with boxwood edged beds of roses, phlox, peonies and foxgloves with a heliotrope standard in the center. English ivy and climbing hydrangeas grew over the walls.
By 2012 when the most recent restoration of the garden was begun the rose and perennial beds were long gone, having been shaded out and replaced by lawn by an intervening owner. Shade loving perennials including astilbe, foxglove, lupine, and heliotrope were planted around the perimeter of that lawn. The lawn in the lower circular garden, now in full sun, was edged with pink dianthus and catmint. Korean dogwood and boxwood were planted on the rise between the two gardens, climbing roses were planted to climb the walls, and clematis was planted to climb the new arches over the gates. This restoration kept the hardscape walls, wall fountain, built-in bench and belvedere (tea house) and was completed in 2014.
Persons associated with the garden are General Charles Greeley Loring, Jr. (1828-1902) (former owner 1881-1902); Quincy Adams Shaw (former owner, 1902-1960); Sarah Pemberton Shaw (former owner, 1902-1945); Lydia Eliot Codman Shaw (former owner, 1947-1966); Samuel Eliot Codman (former owner, 1966-2008); William Ralph Emerson (1833-1917) (architect, 1881-1883); Arthur Little (1852-1925) & Herbert W.C. Browne (1860-1949) (architects of additions, 1903-1905); Henri Crenier (1873-1948) (sculptor, 1910); Laura Gibson (landscape architect, 2012- ).

Rockmarge (Prides Crossing, Massachusetts)
United States of America -- Massachusetts -- Essex County -- Beverly
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of an article and other information.
General:
Rockmarge was the North Shore ocean-front estate of William Henry Moore (1848-1923) and Ada Small Moore (1858-1955). The flower beds were lavishly planted in geometric shapes edged by pruned hedges, connected by swaths of grass, some of which were walkways of considerable length. The estate also had a lily pond, lotus collection, willow walk, rock gardens, herbaceous borders, stone steps, walls and walkways, and wilder areas.
William H. Moore was known as a robber baron who, with his brother James Hobart Moore (1852 - 1916), bought, merged and sold companies, including the National Biscuit Company and the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway. He took up horses in retirement and became a four-in-hand driver of international renown. Ada Small Moore was a member of the North Shore Garden Club and a patron of the arts.
The carriage house of the estate was renovated into a single family home in the 1960s.
Persons associated with the garden are: William H. Moore and Ada Small Moore (former owners, dates unknown).

General:
The original Massachusetts farmhouse expanded and glorified by architect Henry Davis Sleeper (1878-1934) was demolished but the bones of the late 1920s- early 1930s gardens designed by Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (originally Shurtleff, b.1870-1957) and Sidney Nichols Shurcliff (b. 1906-1981) remain, including the octagon garden, the lily pond and Chinese Chippendale style summer house, the octagonal Williamsburg style tool house, and the painted trompe l'oeil garden alcove. The original vegetable garden is much smaller, now fenced and planted in raised beds, with the rest of that garden room replaced by a swimming pool and pool house after 1980. The latticework fencing and treillage garden house in the octagon garden have been restored and left bare; once they were draped with vines and blue morning glories. Mature shaped yews and hydrangea borders are featured now in place of the old-fashioned flower gardens planted in the 1930s.
In the original design garden rooms surrounded the centrally-located house with paths radiating from that house; the current house is on the site of the carriage house in one corner of the 2.3-acre property, alongside the circular drive designed by the Shurcliffs. A summer porch on the current house overlooks the 75-foot long lily pond and a crabapple orchard that was planted on the site of the Sleeper house. The original pink marble fountain from the old-fashioned garden has new plumbing, the opening to the large lawn has been expanded to admit a riding mower, and the trompe l'oeil garden alcove has been restored.
Persons associated with the garden include: Grace M. Edwards and Hannah M. Edwards (former owners, 1917-1946); Russell and Katharine Burrage (former owners, 1946-1949); John and Florence Lindsay (former owners, 1949-1981); Leslie Huntoon (former owner, 1981-2001); Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (changed from Shurtleff), ASLA (landscape architect, 1928-1932); Sidney Nichols Shurcliff, ASLA (landscape architect, 1929-1932); Henry Davis Sleeper (architect of original house,1928-1932); Alton Bynum (gardener, 1981-2003).

General:
The 55 acres acquired in 1950 by the Seamans family comprised the upland area with house, woodland, meadow and pond, and the low-lying wetlands and sandy beachfront. For most of their history these two sections had been separate. The first recorded owner of the upland was Cornelius Larcom, of French Huguenot descent, who acquired it for farmland in the early 1700s. It remained a working farm and family homestead for five generations of Larcoms who lived in the homestead until 1890. Although the original homestead was replaced by a larger house in the 19th century, an historic log cabin remains. It was once quarters for slaves belonging to David Larcom who died in 1775. Juno, one of his female slaves, was freed and continued to live on the property. When the Boston & Maine Railroad extension reached Beverly Farms in 1890, the value of the property soared and was split up into two and purchased separately by 1907. Eventually, the two properties were consolidated into today's "Sea Meadow," but there were virtually no changes over the next century.
Overlooking Massachusetts Bay, the 18-acre garden boasts whimsical designs by its former owner, Eugenia "Gene" Merrill Seamans. Plant material in formal beds, near the house, are carefully chosen, as well as wildflowers, native shrubs and grasses which densely cover the transition to meadow and pond. On the grounds are informal adaptions of formal elements, such as an alleĢe of lindens with a hint of geometry; a folly, that floats above an outcropping, accessed along a hidden path of alpines; and an extensive herb garden nestled in a rocky ledge by the kitchen doors. In the wetlands is a rustic footbridge which crosses the tidal creeks, dotted by berry bushes and banks of towering pink and white mallows.
Persons associated with the garden include the Larcom Family, (former owners, 1730-1853?); the Dexter Family (former owners, 1885-1920); Augusta Putnam (former owner, 1920-1945); Oliver Ames (former owner, 1945-1950); Robert & Eugenia Seamans (former owners, 1950-2010); H. J.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, copies of articles about the garden from the 1920s and 1930s, and other information.
General:
Located on Beacon Hill, this garden is a well-preserved vestige of the post-1900 movement to convert the service areas of 19th-century townhouses into gardens. The garden was originally designed in 1928 by Harvard landscape design graduate Robert Nathan Cram to lie behind two adjoining Joy Street houses (ca. 1810) that he owned. The Depression intervened, however; Cram, financially ruined, died a suicide in 1930 and subsequent owners made many changes. Finally, in 1984 the property was converted to condominium apartments. The condominium association has imaginatively planted and carefully maintained its unique little courtyard. Remarkably, the outlines of Cram's original design are still in place, with several features intact: a chin-deep "plunging pool" fed by a dolphin-head fountain and a pergola supported by twisted columns.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert Nathan Cram (landscape architect, 1928-30) and James Hicks Stone (architect, 1928).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of articles and book excerpts about the park, photocopies of correspondence, maps, and additional information.
General:
Franklin Park (named for native son Benjamin Franklin) was created in 1885 as the terminus of the "Emerald Necklace" park system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted for the City of Boston. Comprising over 500 acres, with 200 acres of woodland, the park was intended to enable working class people to experience and enjoy a rural atmosphere within the surrounding urban area. In that regard it shared the philosophy of Olmsted's two other major creations, Central Park and Prospect Park. Over the years formal recreational areas have been developed beyond those envisioned in Olmsted's original plan (for example, the "Country Park" was converted to a golf course), but many elements of the original design--such as the road system and extensive woodland walks--remain. In recent years citizen activism by the Franklin Park Coalition and other organizations has led to significant preservation efforts for the park's landscape and historic structures. Many of the images in this series were taken by Thomas W. Sears and selected ones were used to illustrate the July 1906 article by John Nolen cited below.
Persons associated with the site include Frederick Law Olmsted (landscape architect, 1885).

General:
The Boston Public Garden was established in 1837 and encompasses about 24 acres in the heart of the city. Along with the Boston Common it forms the northern end of the Emerald Necklace, Frederick Law Olmsted's grand design for a string of parks running from downtown Boston to Franklin Park. The park developed informally until 1859, when a plan by George F. Meacham was finally selected to provide a more formal design. City engineer James Slade and forester John Galvin made modifications to the plan and laid out the paths and plantings. A highlight of the design is the pond or lagoon, home to the iconic Swan Boats, which began operating in 1877. Parterres, other flower beds and planting areas, statues, and numerous specimen trees are featured landscape elements. The Public Garden was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987.
Persons associated with the garden include George F. Meacham (landscape architect, 1859); James Slade (civil engineer, ca. 1860); and John Galvin (forester, ca. 1860).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a photocopied photo of the garden, and a brochure with a generalized site and planting plan.
General:
As part of the transformation of the wetlands of the Back Bay Fens into urban parkland, in 1930 landscape architect Arthur A. Shurtleff (a.k.a. Shurcliff) designed a circular formal rose garden. Located opposite the Museum of Fine Arts, the garden was intended as a place for both the general public and rose enthusiasts to learn about and enjoy roses. The garden was expanded in 1933 and in 1975 was named the James P. Kelleher Rose Garden to honor the Boston Parks and Recreation Department's Superintendent of Horticulture. Prior to its formal naming in honor of Kelleher, the garden area was variously identified as "The Fenway," "Back Bay Fens," "The Riverway, "The Parkway," "The Emerald Necklace," and "Fenway Rose Garden." In 2001 the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, in concert with the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, developed a master plan for the garden's restoration and renewal. This project was completed in 2008. Currently the garden contains nearly 1,500 plants in over ten classes and 200 varieties of roses.
Persons associated with the garden include Arthur A. Shurtleff (landscape architect, 1930).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include a work sheet and copies of articles.
General:
Larz and Isabel Anderson created fashionable and personally inspiring gardens on a property they named "Weld" in honor of her grandfather, William Fletcher Weld. The gardens served as inspiration for Isabel's writings of children's stories. They also evoked the history of Larz and Isabel's family heritage. During their ownership, the garden plan was nearly square, with a built-up enclosure of terrace and balustrades on the sides. A pergola stood at the end. The lowest level of the garden contained the mall and flower beds. A grove of trees shut off the formal garden from the house. Semicircular cement seats are located at each end of the 380 foot allee. Isabel left Weld to the town of Brookline for public recreation and public education. Brookline renamed Weld "Larz Anderson Park." Sited as not suited for a public facility, the house was razed and the gardens were destroyed or abandoned. The stables now house the Museum of Transportation, founded in 1949 with the Andersons' motor car collection. In 1990, an effort was attempted to stabilize the few remaining structures. Bulldozing of the grounds now makes restoration difficult.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: William F. Weld (former owner of land); Larz and Isabel Weld Perkins Anderson (former owners, -1948); Town of Brookline (present owners, 1948-present); Edmund M. Wheelwright (architect of house, stable and garage, begun 1885); Charles A. Platt (architect of Italian garden, grove and bowling green,1901); Fox and Gale (architects of rose garden and tennis courts, 1902); Onchi San (gardener of Japanese garden, 1907); Little and Browne (architects of water garden and Chinese garden and additions to house, 1910-1916)

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets and several photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
Established in 1869, this now mostly vanished garden was the 150-acre estate of Harvard professor and Arnold Arboretum director Charles Sprague Sargent (1841-1927). An amalgamation of several older holdings, Holm Lea was noted for its size, the variety of its trees and shrubs, its broad expanses of lawn and meadow, and its vistas and natural woods. As noted by Andrew Jackson Downing in the second edition of his work on landscape gardening published in 1844, much of the groundwork was laid by Thomas Lee, an owner prior to Sargent, who planted trees and shrubs such as rhododendron and kalmia. By the early 1900s the garden's collection of these plants was considered to be outstanding. A later writer noted that Holm Lea "is the most inspiring estate in the United States and the best specimen of landscape-gardening in America because every department of country life is here represented in due proportion without extravagance or faddism, and all are blended into a beautiful and useful picture which is nothing short of exquisite." Among Holm Lea's other features were a rock garden, a pond, and a small herd of cows that added to the picturesque aspect of the landscape. Charles Sander, Holm Lea's gardener for more than 30 years, was a recognized plantsman and Massachusetts Horticultural Society award winner. Although the estate was subdivided after Sargent's death, elements of the garden, including the now algae-choked pond and overgrown rock garden, still survived in the 1990s.
Persons associated with the garden include: Thomas Lee (former owner, ca. 1825-ca. 1864); Charles Sprague Sargent (former owner, 1869-1927); and Charles Sander (gardener, 1875-ca. 1910).
In addition to the 41 original images, there are 16 additional black and white 35 mm. slides, copies of photographs in The Public Library of Brookline, 361 Washington Street, Brookline, MA 024445.
