Description

View of the formal garden behind the Robert Carter House taken by F.S. Lincoln in 1935. Geometric parterres bordered with boxwood hedges are intersected by brick pathways to create an ornate and orderly vista. The necessary or privy is situated at the back of the garden, as was customary to provide privacy. A bench along the back path offers a spot to enjoy the scents and colors of the flowers.
