Originally a Fruit Garden
Oddly enough, for a garden devoted to innovations, there are a number of trees dating from the late 1930s. What's more, they are all nut-bearing trees: butternuts, black walnuts and pecans.
That's because they are remnants of this site’s first role, as a fruit garden (nuts are fruit, after all!) created in 1938.
