HISTORY OF HORTICULTURE IN MICHIGAN

BY J. C. HOLIES, OF DETROIT

On Trees and Shrubs—George V. N. Lothrop, Lewis Hall, Bela Hubbard, John E. Schwarz. On Greenhouse Plants and- Florist's Flowers—John Ford, M. Howard Webster, John C. Holmes, Wm. B. Wesson. On Indigenous Plants—Bela Hubbard, John B. Piquette, F. F. Merceron. On Vegetables—Thomas Hall. Robert Stead, Henry D. Hastings, Thomas W. Lockwood. The membership consisted of William Adair, Samuel Barstow, George G. Bull, George Duffield, John Ford, Thomas Hall, Henry D. Hastings, John C. Holmes, Lewis Hall, Bela Hubbard, Thomas W. Lockwood, George V. X. Lothrop, John Lumsden, F. F. Merceron, J. H. Morris, William R. Noyes, John B. Piquette, Francis Raymond, Robert Stead, John E. Schwarz, Benjamin G. Stimson, Adrian R. Terry, John Winder, M. Howard Webster, William B. Wesson. In 1846 the society held several exhibitions of horticultural products, as well as meetings for conversations, lectures and discussions. For the purpose of showing what were the leading varieties of fruit under cultivation, and who were some of the fruit growers in and near Detroit at that time, I will give the names of some of the exhibitors and fruits exhibited in 1847. Among the varieties named you will probably recognize some that were long ago discarded and stricken from the list as unworthy of general cultivation in Michigan.
