Many thanks to Bill Hickman and Paul O’Brien for providing the copies of sales brochures and other information used in this site, and especially to Bill for keeping records of CGCA history and issues through the years and his generosity in sharing them.
Some of the information the Anderson farm and its history is from an article in the November, 1982 CGCA newsletter (author unknown) and from the book Rockville: Portrait of a City by Eileen McGuckian, Hillsboro Press, 2001.
Thanks to Mary and J.P. Richard and to Zelda Young for information on the history of the Anderson Farm.
This site can be expanded in many directions. It can serve as a source of interesting information about our community as well as a stimulus to investigate more aspects of the history of College Gardens and the land it occupies.
