Goose Chase (Locust Valley, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau County -- Locust Valley
Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, site plans (one with a plant list), photocopies of an article about the garden, and additional information.
General:
Lying on 3.2 acres adjacent to a marsh and creek, this site is highlighted by a Japanese-influenced 40' x 80' iris garden that also includes features of a cottage garden in keeping with its location by a low, rambling house. Designed in the early 1980s by Nancy B. Taylor of the landscape architecture firm Innocenti & Webel, the garden replaced what was formerly an asphalt driveway. Running the length of the garden are a dry riverbed and path, accented by two small bridges. Although there is no actual water in the garden, the use of different plants helps to simulate that effect. In addition to this garden, the site includes more natural areas with marsh and water views, as well as a swimming pool and herb garden.
Persons and firms associated with the property include Nancy B. Taylor (landscape architect, 1981); Mr. and Mrs. C. Gachot (former owners, 1956-1981); and Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1981).

General:
Located in Locust Valley, New York, this garden is located on a three-acre property originally part of a larger estate and divided in 1930. Fremont C.

This garden features a four quadrant rose garden of hybrid teas and floribunda roses, surrounded by a perennial garden of hybrid peonies and bulbs encased by a low brick wall. The climbing roses in this enclosure are all white. A cutting garden of dahlias is located to the southeast of the courtyard near the greenhouse.
Additional plantings include a pair of distinguished white Beech trees, a pair of European yews 25 feet in diameter, a specimen tulip tree, as well as topiaries and boxwood. Around the perimeter of the property are mountain laurels and rhododendron plantings. Water features include a stream and a small waterfall that empties into one of two small lily ponds. The grounds also include a swimming pool, tool shed, herb garden, cutting garden, wall fountains and sculpture.

General:
The formal walled garden at Feathers, created in 1996 by the current owner along with landscape designer Lisa Thompson, is a small part of the six and one-half acre property with the original circa 1730 house. The 31 by 23 foot formal garden is divided into four parterres edged in boxwood with walks made from old bricks to match a standing old brick wall. A pink rose standard grows in the center of each parterre, surrounded by low-growing ground covers and annual flowers such as pansies. The brick wall is covered in climbing hydrangea and clematis, and has three arched doorways that lead into the garden. A bronze sculpture of the owner's son as a child created by his grandmother, Mary Emma Flood (1900-1987), overlooks the garden from a niche in the brick wall.
The spring-fed property overlooks Beaver Lake, where there is a small house and rock and fern garden. There is another garden of perennial and ornamental grasses near the lake, and many mature trees. A brick room next to the main house that held a furnace in earlier days has New Dawn roses trellised on the roof.
Persons associated with the garden include: Charles Wright (former owner and builder of the original house, circa 1730-1741); Isaac Frost and members of the Frost family (former owners, circa 1741-1763); John Underhill and members of the Underhill family (former owners, 1763-1901); Ella Kennard (former owner, 1901); Harvey Murdock and members of the Murdock family (former owners, 1901-1927); Alicia Gamble Ludlow (former owner, 1927-1953); Innis, Helen S., and Blanche S. O'Rourke (former owners, 1953-1973); Harvey L. and Cornelia D. Schwartz (former owners, 1973-1983); David W.C. Clark (former owner, 1983-1987); Norman C. and Kathleen H. Keith (former owners, 1987-1994); Helen Dillon (landscape designer, 1995); Lisa Thompson (landscape designer, 1996); Robert Gahagan (architect of new addition, 1997); Mary Emma Flood (sculptor of bronze statue of child).
This property has been extensively researched for the transfers of title beginning in 1685, when a deed of sale was signed by individuals who were likely Matinecock Indians.

General:
The 1922 Georgian Revival house and 29 acre estate (first called Gay Gardens) has gardens designed in different eras by Ellen Biddle Shipman in the 1920's, Umberto Innocenti in the 1930's and 1940's, and most recently by Oehme van Sweden starting in the late 1990's. Shipman designed a sunken grass garden surrounded by a yew hedge off to the side of the house with formal flower beds with yew or beech hedges, and more flower beds on the terraces. She placed a square stone reflecting pool in the center of the sunken garden. In the 1930's Innocenti moved the stairs to the sunken garden and removed Shipman's pool, adding a lozenge-shaped pool beyond the sunken garden with an open sightline from the house. He also designed an oval swimming pool with plantings (later replaced by a rectangular pool). In the 1940's Innocenti & Webel redesigned the front courtyard and surrounded the new tennis court with beech trees. Under the current owners landscape architects Oehme van Sweden designed a large pond with native plants and a recirculating water system that includes a waterfall and stream, added white pebbles to the driveway and pleached the beech around the tennis court.
Boxwood Farm has four acres of lawn interspersed with mature maple and other trees and huge flower beds. Perennial flowers include Russian sage, buddleia, lavender, ligularia, liriope, echinacea, penstemon, rudbeckia, Joe Pye weed and ornamental grasses; shrubs include boxwood, hydrangea, azalea, viburnum and knock-out roses. Ficus trees are planted out each year near an antique wall fountain in a small garden room of the patio, then dug up and kept in the greenhouse over the winter. An adjoining small room has a sundial, stellata magnolia and hydrangea. The lawn to the south of the house is intersected with stone pathways that divide it into diamond and triangular patches. Numerous stone planters are filled with lavender and agapanthus or white lantana in the summer and violas in cooler seasons. There is a raised garden surrounded by a picket fence set on a low dry stone wall that has a wooden grape arbor and boxwood parterres filled with white tulips, dwarf alliums, cardinal flowers, salvia, apple mint and strawberry plants, depending on the season. In a nearby 15 by 21 foot raised garden vegetables and flowers for cutting are grown. Another vegetable and fruit garden was added in the service area, once the site of another house on the original 179 acre estate. Woodland gardens border the driveway and a bridle paths recalls the polo matches held on the property in a previous era.
Persons associated with the garden include Hugh A. Murray and estate of (former owners, 1922-circa 1935); Catherine B. Hickox (former owner, 1935-1970); Charles V. Hickox and estate of (former owners, 1970-circa 1982); Paul Guez (former owner, circa 1982-circa 1989); GOV agencies (former owners, circa 1990-1997); Julian Peabody (1881-1935) of Peabody, Wilson & Brown (architect, 1922); Ellen Biddle Shipman (1869-1950) (landscape architect, 1922); Umberto Innocenti (1895-1968) (landscape architect, 1937- ); Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 1946-1970); Charles A. Parr (superintendent, late 1930's-1950's); Bradley Delahanty (architect of pool house, 1947-1950); Oehme, van Sweden & Associates (landscape architects, 1998- ); James Ahern (estate manager, 2008- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
The landscaping for Groton Place was designed in the 1930s by Umberto Innocenti and Richard K. Webel, featuring uninterrupted axial passages with stopping places but no feeling of enclosure. Since then the trees on the property have matured, the serpentine yew hedge has filled in, and the original oval rose garden has been converted to flowering shrubs. A ha-ha separates the house and the ornamental gardens from horse pastures. A pinetum shades the rectangular swimming pool, and woodlands on the property are filled with native trees and shrubs. A mature cedar alleĢe leads to the stables, the one example of a passage that ends in a structure. Architects McKim, Mead & White designed a house and outbuildings at Groton Place in 1912, but that house was razed in 1948 and another Georgian house on the property built in the 1930s is the residence of the current owners.
In 1968 a parcel of 250 acres of land was sold to a golf club, and the remaining 108 acres of Groton Place were placed in a conservation easement for protection.
Persons associated with the garden include William Willis (deed holder, 1700s); members of the John Titus and Jacob Hicks families (former owners, 1700s-circa 1895); Robert Dudley Winthrop (former owner, 1895); Beekman Winthrop (former owner, 1912); Grenville L. Winthrop (former owner, 1940); Robert W. Winthrop (former owner, 1943-1997); Henry Renwick Sedgwick (architect, 1932); McKim, Meade & White (architects of former house and stables, circa 1912); Umberto Innocenti (d. 1968) & Richard K.Webel (d. 2000)(landscape architects, 1930s).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include a worksheet, site map, copies of articles, plant list.
Former Title:
The Henry W. de Forest Estate.
General:
This property comprises lands formerly part of the Henry Wheeler de Forest estate. The buildings include Ballybung, built on site of the demolished mansion, and Airslie, a Federal-period farmhouse. Close to the water's edge, the de Forest family erected an Italianate-style house, which they called Nethermuir. The grounds slope down to the water, and were planted with rare trees such as cryptomeria, ginkgo, beeches, and fir. According to a 1921 visit to the garden by the Garden Club of America, the garden was an "old-fashioned walled garden" with best blooming times in May and June. Henry W. de Forest contracted with Olmsted Borthers to create the walled garden. Wooden arbors existed at the lower end, while a free-standing stone tea house and wrought-iron gates remain near the six planting quadrants. The specialty was dogwood and wall plantings. The formal walled garden was later subdivided into three separate parcels. Today, much of the box remains, but little, if any, other plant material survives. Several features include winding paths, open spaces with garden vistas, and the curved driveway at Airslie House.
Persons and organizations associated with this garden include:Henry W. deForest (former owner); The Jones family (former owners, 1785-1978); Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (owner, 1978-present); Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. (landscape architect, 1906, 1909); Olmsted Brothers (landscape architects)
Related Materials:
Nethermuir related holdings consist of 3 folders (8 glass lantern slides; 2 b&w photoprints; and 6 35 mm. slides)
Many drawings and photographs exist at Fairsted, Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site.
