Strachan Garden (New Orleans, Louisiana)
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 20 35mm slides.
General:
Located in an area called the Garden District in New Orleans, Louisiana, this garden includes distinct areas including a formal rose garden, courtyard paved in pink granite, and an elegant teahouse. Cast iron fences, hedges of sasanqua, and clipped rows of cherry laurel separate each garden room. Walls further screen the swimming pool, hot houses and tool storage building. Sculptures and fountains ornament various locations and compliment seasonal blooms, camellias, gardenias, and azaleas.

The garden closest to the house was originally established in 1933. Landscape architect Umberto Innocenti designed the patio with the crane fountain and pink granite blocks in 1958. In 1953, the only plants left from the original planting are the large crepe myrtle trees in each corner and the sweet olives. On the west side of the house, there were long garden beds bordered by violets planted with different varieties of iris, crinums and flowering shrubs. Hedges of gardenias enclosed a formal garden on the other side of the house and at the center of the garden a large kettle from a sugar plantation was sunk and used as a pool. Behind the house was a play yard for children and a hothouse filled with orchids.

The Greek Revival Style home was built for cotton owner Jacob Upshur Payne in 1849. A granite plinth in the shape of a cemetery headstone notes that Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, died during his stay at the home on December 6, 1889.

Persons associated with the property include Jacob Upshur Payne (former owner, 1849), Jacob Payne, Jr. (former owner, 1886), Mrs. Charles E. Fenner (former owner, 1901), William B. Forsyth (former owner, 1935), Frank and Rose Strachan (former owner, 1942-1987?), Umberto Innocenti (landscape architect, 1958), Patricia Forsyth Strachan (owner, 2019?).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, maps and other information.
Varying Form:
The Clearing, formerly known as.
General:
During the Revolutionary era, the area was part of a farm. An estate, once known as The Clearing, was created on the site in 1889 by John Hornor Wisner. He built the present Colonial revival residence, which now serves as the administrative and educational center for the Arboretum. Mr. Wisner plotted the original gardens and Mrs. Wisner planted the first daffodils. Each April the daffodil display, enlarged from earlier times, is a major Arboretum attraction. In 1916, the new owners, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Reeves, hired a New York landscape architect to develop an overall design for the property. Mrs. Reeves was also a member of the Summit Garden Club. The Reeves family increased the daffodil plantings and, around 1925, started the rose garden. The Charles L. Reed family became the last private owners in the 1960s, adding the herb garden and creating the woodland trails.
The property became a public institution, the Reeves-Reed Arboretum, in 1974, when Summit citizens acted to protect the 12.5 acres of woodlands, glacial contours and dells, rolling lawns, and inspired gardens from encroaching development.
Persons associated with the garden include John and Isabelle Wisner (former owners, 1888-1918); Richard E. Reeves and Susie Graham Reeves (former owners, 1918-1968); Charles L. Reeves, Jr. and Ann Reeves Reed (former owners, 1968-1974); Calvert Vaux (landscape architect); Ellen Shipman (landscape architect); Carl F. Pilat (landscape architect, 1925); Babb, Cook & Willard (New York City, architect); Wodell & Cottrell (garden designers).
