The mansion was quaint and pretty, with many wings and gables and broad verandas. There were acres of green lawn sprinkled with shrubbery and bright flowers, cris-crossed by white gravel paths. There were stables, a poultry yard, and a beautiful, broad river. (Dot and Tot of Merryland)
As a boy, L. Frank Baum lived on a country estate called "Rose Lawn."
