Lord & Schryver Conservancy
Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver were the first women in the Pacific Northwest to own and operate their own landscape architecture firm, and designed over 250 landscapes and gardens in the region between 1929 and 1969. The Lord & Schryver Conservancy grew from an increasing awareness in Salem about the work of Lord & Schryver and a concern for the fate of the gardens at "Gaiety Hollow", their home, studio, and the tour de force of their life's work. In 2015, the Lord & Schryver Conservancy acquired Gaiety Hollow and began restoring the garden and opening it to the public.
The mission of the Conservancy is to "preserve, interpret, and steward the legacy of Lord and Schryver for public enrichment." Gaiety Hollow serves the public by providing a space for historic display gardens, educational programs, conserved archival materials, and small event rentals. It is a unique resource for garden design, plant display, and research, and it is a historic site that welcomes visitors in a fascinating and beautiful environment.
Gaiety Hollow is located at 545 Mission Street in Salem, Oregon. The gardens are open on select days or by appointment.
In partnership with the City of Salem, Conservancy volunteers also assist in the restoration and maintenance of the historic gardens at Deepwood Museum & Gardens, which were also designed by Lord & Schryver.
