Hooper-Hathaway Garden Photographs, c.1954

Date: c.1954

Type: Photograph

Categories: , ,


These photographs of the Seaside Gardens and the Hooper-Hathaway House capture the sense of enclosure that both the gardens and the structures on the property create. Here you can see the seaside lawn prior to landscape designer Daniel Foley’s creation of our current perennial garden and brick walkways.

Note the fence in the first image seperating the property from a playground where the Hawthorne Birthplace is now located, and the structure in the far left of the second image that was destroyed when part of the seawall collapsed in 1954, shortly after these photographs were taken.
