Notes from "Eight inspiring historical gardens across Canada"

Senator George Taylor Fulford made his money selling patent medicine with the memorable slogan “Pink Pills for Pale People.” He made so much money, in fact, that he could hire the Olmsted Brothers—the legendary landscape architectural firm that designed New York’s Central Park and Montreal’s Mount Royal Park—to lay out the plan for his mansion’s garden in 1899. Researchers delved into the Olmsted archives in Massachusetts to find historical letters, photos and plans that helped them restore the long-neglected landscape. Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, the restored Italianate garden features geometric flowerbeds and elegant stone statues, along with a white marble fountain adorned with mythical beasts. Visit today and you can get a sense of how the rich and famous enjoyed their fortunes at the turn of the last century.
