Inscription. This southeast corner of Somerset Avenue, originally Bridge Street, and Washington Street, first named Upper Alley has been enhanced by this private boxwood garden since the first half of the 19th century. Long-standing tradition in Princess Anne has credited General George Handy (January 19, 1788 - March 21, 1856). who lived next door, with planning and planting the ornamental parterpe arrangement.
