Stringfellow Orchards

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Nationally and internationally recognized horticulturist Henry Martyn Stringfellow (1839–1912) started an experimental garden and orchard at this location in 1883. In 1890 he published a treatise containing innovative 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 experimental horticulturist of his time. Vestiges of his handiwork were evident here in Hitchcock, Texas over 100 years later.
