Gaiety Hollow, located in a Salem historic district, was the home, garden and studio of Lord and Schryver, two notable landscape architects who introduced a new style of gardens in the Pacific Northwest.  Characterized as Beaux Arts in style with an array of plants suitable to cultivation in the region, the 0.4 acre garden is being restored to its 1932-1969 Period of Significance. The property is owned by the Lord & Schryver Conservancy, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and interpret the legacy of Lord and Schryver and to develop the site into a cultural and educational center for the community. The conservancy seeks a garden manager/curator to assume a leadership role in restoring the garden while also overseeing its maintenance. The garden manager will represent the garden to the public and will participate in developing educational programs as Gaiety Hollow.
