|Although the description of Dumbarton Oaks is very positive, the following corrects some inaccuracies. In your description of Dumbarton Oaks, you note that "Some 16 acres remain as gardens, while the remainder was donated to the public as Dumbarton Oaks Park." Of the 53 acres, 16 where donated to Dumbarton Oaks Harvard University, 27 went to Dumbarton Oaks Park the National Park and the remaining 10 were sold.
Of the 16 acres, there are 10 acres of garden and 6 acres of campus buildings.
Another inaccuracy concerns the design of the garden. The garden's design incorporates a number of European features. Beatrix Ferrand incorporated principles of Italian design, French design, and English design. Thereby, making the garden very American in character.
