Princeton in Mercer County, New Jersey — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Colonial Revival Garden
Helen claimed to have uncovered a number of plants from that garden, although none could have survived two centuries, In a manner typical of the Colonial Revival, she included not only plants thought to have grown at Morven, but also specimens from various historic sites.
She spoke and wrote extensively to promote Morven’s significance; her garden at Morven was included in the Garden Club of America’s 1930s landmark publication, Gardens of Colony and State. It is her garden that has been restored behind the house.
