Surrounding a 19th-century Victorian Eclectic
mansion, this quarter-acre garden reflects the
horticultural trends of suburban gardens and rural
“villas” of the 1840s-1880s. The gardens draw upon
principles of Andrew Jackson Downing
and Frank J. Scott.
A curved brick pathway passing
through clustered shrubs, a “ribbon
border” celebrates the Centennial
style, and espaliered fruit trees and
grape arbor anchor a kitchen garden.
