Creekside Digital

Mass digitization is ongoing with the next phase of our Smithsonian Gardens project. We are now imaging the Archives of American Gardens (AAG) which preserves and provides access to visual resources and records that document the history of gardens in America.

Primarily a photographic archive, AAG includes documentation on over 10,000 historic and contemporary gardens. Photographic formats range from antique stereographs to recent digital images. AAG’s collections document the work of landscape architects, garden designers, and garden photographers as well as a handful of seed companies.

Examples of trade literature generated by these companies in the Archives include seed catalogs with ornately illustrated covers as seen here. Soon all these digital images will be viewable in high resolution online at Smithsonian's collections.si.edu/search/
