Description

View of the Coke-Garrett House, taken from the garden by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. Three costumed interpreters or "hostesses" stand along a brick pathway in the boxwood garden adjacent to the house. Once the eighteenth-century residence of silversmith John Coke, the house later became the home of the Garrett family in the nineteenth century.

The gardens feature a combination of boxwood hedges, formal parterres, and shrubs. Paths laid out in geometric formations offer various vistas of the house, outbuildings, and garden ornaments.
