Senseless destruction and disregard for such a beautiful and elegant home and garden. We will never see such a place built again.

This is one of the best photo's I've seen of the fountain and south side of the mansion. Other photo's are either in B&W or after the mansion was in shambles, which is how it looked when I visited in the mid-1970's. Do you know when these photo's, and those of the Grotto fountain, were taken?

by the looks of the fountains and the mansions condition in the background I would say absolutely has to be late 60's

What a great fountain, and these are such great photos of it, too! Thank you for sharing them. Would have loved to have seen the indoor wall fountains inside that mansion too, though, but I'll just have to enjoy this very nice fountain by itself ;)
