Scope and content
The series contains records related to the establishment, maintenance, and expansion of the Cullen Gardens and Miniature Village site and the Weall & Cullen Nurseries farm on Taunton Road West in Whitby. The majority of records deal with Leonard Cullen's initial site planning process for Cullen Gardens and Miniature Village from the late 1970s to 1980s, including re-designation of land, construction and modification of buildings for tourists, water servicing and sewage treatment, and project mortgaging. Some records also pertain to the company's 1981 purchase of Hood Park on Taunton Road West. Finally, some records detail the incorporation of Cullen Gardens in December 1971.
Records in the series are arranged in subject files. Documentary forms include the following: correspondence; site plan agreements and re-designation applications submitted to the Town of Whitby; photocopies of articles of incorporation; agreements of purchase and sale; rough sketches of the gardens; technical drawings created during official land surveying processes; indentures; press releases; building permits; maps; building floor plans; photographs of the site; and copies of Town by-laws.
Immediate source of acquisition
Some subject files in the series were created by the donor and maintained by the archivist. Remaining records bore no evidence of an original order, so the archivist supplied file groupings to increase ease of use.
