Roseland Cottage

A Pleasure Ground

Trees were planted in earnest around Roseland Cottage in order to create a pleasure ground. Clarence wrote of an afternoon he spent “on the hammock reading under the trees” in order to avoid the crowd at Roseland Park. This photo shows the many areas Clarence might have slung his hammock.
