Landscape architectural plan for the entrance of the Grassmere estate. It details the plan for the paving of the driveway, gates, fences, posts, and cattle traps. Originally from the Grassmere Collection.
William Dickson Shute purchased the Grassmere property from his father Lee Shute. He redesigned the home from federal style into Italianate, adding extensive porches. Shute's daughter, Kate, married William Croft and their daughters, Margaret and Elise, were responsible for bequeathing the property to the Children's Museum (Adventure Science Center) and turning much of the land into a nature reserve and later the Nashville Zoo."
