- Creator:J. Frazer Smith
- Title:Hunt-Phelan Garden Plan
- Date:ca. 1860
- Description:This drawing of a garden by J. Frazer Smith includes an illustration of a peacock in the left corner. The irregularly shaped ovals making up the formal garden are labeled "boxwoods" and "Cherokee roses" and a rectangular plot behind the formal garden is labeled "vegetable garden."
- Historical Note:This drawing shows the formal garden of what is known today as the Hunt-Phelan home. A Greek-Revival Memphis mansion built in 1835, it was owned by William Hunt, whose wife inherited it from her father, during the Civil War. The gardens, reputedly designed by a French architect, were part of a master plan for the whole property that included the driveway, walking paths, ornamental shrubs, and historic trees.
