GoldSmith / Fletcher Steele Birdhouse in Rochester Gardens

This bird house was designed for the Ellwanger Estate in 1939. Fletcher Steele, the designer, is considered to be the key figure in the transition between Beaux Formalism and modern landscape design.

The original design was given to me be by the Landmark Society, which was in possession of the Steele archives until transferred to Suny College of Environmental Science and Forestry.

Please visit my web-site, I would appreciate your comments and impressions regarding the Ellwanger Estate Bird House birdhouse!

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your time and attention!
