Bouquet Valley, Adirondacks was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1878, No. 286. Its owner was given as Benjamin Coates, whose name is identified on a label including the title and the artist's name, apparently handwritten by the artist and formerly attached to the back of the frame or stretcher. By 1911, the painting belonged to Beulah Mannering of Berwyn, Pennsylvania, who sold it in that year to Rev. Christoph Keller, her cousin. Rev. Keller gave the painting to Katherine Keller Marshall, his daughter and late wife of the donor, in the 1970s.
