This landscape built in 1951, inspired Margaret Chambliss to preface the name “Riding” with “Reflection”. The serene pond mirrors ever changing images of nature. From nearby benches watch the clouds as they seem to skim across the water. On a sunny day the turtles lazily lounge on the banks. Horses refresh themselves at the ponds edge and water fowl frequently dart in and out of the scene. This beautifully designed landscape is a favorite place for artists and photographers.
Rickards Reflection was named for Col. Wm. Rickards, who was in command of the 29th Pennsylvania. This regiment fought at Gettysburg and at the Battle Above the Clouds at Lookout Mountain in the Civil War. Before enlisting he was a jeweler by trade.
