Italianate Garden Manor House

This garden was designed by Percival Gallagher of the Olmsted Firm and functioned as a room of the Manor House, the Copper Beech hedge providing “walls.” The Camperdown elms (trees nearest the house) are grafted trees and original to Gallagher’s design. The fountain is a 14th century Spanish baptismal font, purchased by Cheney-Baltzell on her honeymoon.
