The Gardens of 'Gardenside'
The gardens of 'Gardenside', the Frederick A. Snow estate designed c. 1900 in Southampton with landscaping by Clarence Fowler. The residence was originally built for Francis Lewis Wellman, attorney and partner in the firm of Wellman & Gooch. Snow was also an attorney and president of Snow & Snow, a real estate and insurance firm. These 1914 photos were taken by Frances Benjamin Johnston. In 1982 the house and gardens were extensively remodeled. Click HERE to see 'Gardenside' on bing.
