King’s Nursery to Celebrate 100th AnniversaryPosted on : August 31, 2015
The little nursery that started along the train tracks in Tenaha, Texas selling wholesale fruit trees in 1915 just keeps going and going. Now in its 100th year, Kings Nursery and Florist employs its fourth generation of Kings. On October 10th come help Margaret Freeman King, her daughter-in-law Cheryl King, and grandsons Aaron and Andrew King celebrate 100 years serving Texas and Louisiana gardeners. The festivities kick off at 10:00 am with a welcome and bit of nursery history followed by an entertaining lecture by well-known Texas horticulturist and author Greg Grant at 11:00. Hot dogs and fixings will be served at noon followed by a generous helping of musical talent. After 66 years in the business herself, Margaret would like to thank as many people in person as possible for all their support through the years. The nursery is located on US 84 just east of the US 59/US 96 interchange in Tenaha. For more information call the nursery at 936-248-3811.
