The gardens at the Mansion were created to represent two time periods during the Victorian era. The northwest triangle of the garden was based on the philosophy and designs of Andrew Jackson Downing’s book The Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening, 1841. Frank Scott’s book Art of Beautifying Suburban Grounds, 1870, was the inspiration for the southeast portion of the garden. Nationally renowned landscape architect Reed Engle designed the Mansion gardens using precepts from these books.
