For sixty years, Fletcher Steele practiced landscape architecture as a fine art, designing nearly seven hundred gardens, from Boston to Detroit, from North Carolina to Canada. Often brilliant, always original, Steele's work is considered by many to constitute the essential link between nineteenth-century Beaux Arts formalism and modern landscape design.

Allen, a wealthy New Yorker, hired Steele in 1915 when the house plans were still on the drawing table.
