Papers include genealogical materials, legal documents, correspondence, subject files, news clippings, published works, daily diaries of Alma Atwood and John Whitney Ormsby (1862-1866), and one blueprint of Bonnie Oaks (1924). The correspondence, subject files, and photographs comprise the majority of the collection. The bulk of the correspondence dates from the 1850s-1890s and is generally between family members, with a large number of outgoing letters from Alma Atwood Ormsby to her parents, Joshua Atwood and Rosina Willson Atwood, and to her husband, John Whitney Ormsby. Correspondence from the 1920s-1930s contains exchanges between members of the Green family including Eleanor Green (Piel), Katherine Green, and Mildred Ormsby Green, and the artists who visited Bonnie Oaks, such as Robert Fitzgerald, Zona Gale, Margery Latimer (Toomer), Joseph and Rosina Lhevinne, William Maxwell, Frantz Proschowski, Paul and Eslanda Robeson, and Jean Toomer.
