Stringfellow Orchards. Nationally and internationally recognized horticulturist Henry Martyn Stringfellow (1839-1922) started an experimental garden and orchard at this location in 1883. In 1890 he published a treatise containing inovative organic gardening methods that were adopted by Japanese, German, and many American fruit and vegetable growers. Silver medals garnered at two world fairs and world-wide acclaim for additional publications solidified his stature as a premier experiemental horticulturist of his time. Vestiges of his handiwork were evident here over 100 years later. (1992) [NOTE: Stringfellow's correct death date is 1912] #11570
